The exhibits are very interesting and the tour of the outdoor exhibits explaining the different cultural groups was so good. Our tour guide, Austin, was very knowledgeable.

In my view this is a place "must go". Learned a lot of history about people living in the far north of Alaska variety of tribes, their everyday lives, cultures, hunting etc. I enjoyed few hours spent there. Storytelling was great. Exhibition was very nice.

Another great place. Learnt alot. The weather was lousy but it was still a great place to go. Proper arts and crafts on sale but quite expensive. Your money goes back to the centre and to the people selling their wares. Recommend it.

The Native Heritage Center is a must-do on your next visit to Anchorage! The Heritage Center is more of an interpretive experience than a museum, although there is a central building which houses some artifacts as well as Native art pieces (it also house a...More

The place itself is probably a 2 hr visit with kids. It's a free shuttle from town but takes about 15 min each way.
