The center was a surprise find. It has well thought out exhibits, is well kept and is free. While we were there we saw an excellent film on the Aurora Borrealis. Definitely a place to go.

The museum is small, but well organized and full of interesting Alaskan facts. Take an hour of your visit to get a quick summary of the culture and regional things of interest.

This cultural center focused on the people, land and animals of what is considered "Interior Alaska". All of the displays were well done and very interesting. Be sure to see the movie shown in the auditorium. The cultural center is an easy walk from hotels...More
