In “The Hall of Cultures” you can contemplate over artifacts, manuscripts and images of frontier days in Alaska. You’ll learn what rugged mountains and wildlife helped to make the Yukon great, and what traditional people did to stave off the cold winters and feast in the bright summers. You’ll see how earthen buildings were constructed to be structurally sound and thermally efficient, as well as have the opportunity to buy a traditional Native artifact for a loved one.
Here, at the Alaska Native Heritage Center, visitors get a chance to learn about the great traditions of those native to the land, and see just how amazing life can be in the great outdoors.

Excellent guide - good way to see the city. Great to see the kids performing at the Heritage Center.

The city tour was interesting, although it sped by some spots that could have been good photo opportunities. The highlight was the Alaska Native Heritage Center, which I highly reccomend to everyone interested in learning about Alaska Natives and their culture. It is located in a beautiful setting, with lots to see and enjoy. I enjoyed talking with some of the natives who work there and taking pictures. I just wish the tour would have stopped at other spots as well, such as flat top, where I heard you could take in all of Anchorage.
