Fossils and recreations, excellent explanatory movies and a super layout both inside and out make this museum a great first visit. Pay a little more and see the nearby transportation museum as well.

Countless thousands of years ago, as temperatures plunged and the seas froze, water levels fell so far that the Beringian land bridge opened up, allowing men and animals to walk over from Russia to Alaska. This exhibition explains well how the process worked and what...More
