Walk around the man-made lake and see for yourself what some of the Alaska Native Traditional homes and gathering places might have looked like pre-contact. In coordination with NANA Corp., Alaskan Natives came together with NANA who provided jobs and income to construct many of the... More

This combines well with the Anchorage Museum and there's a free shuttle between the two. Complement the art exhibited at the AM with the way people lived at ANHC.

If you are on a short time limit, this is the place to go to learn just about everything about nearly every indigenous group in Alaska. Take the time, make the trip, go on the tour.

Interesting to learn more about the people of Alaska. The outside area has a lot of walking, so take comfortable shoes and appropriate clothing. Met lots of nice local artisans as well.

I had a good time, I'm betting summer season is the best time to visit. Loved all the art, performances and tour. I plan to head back this summer.
