Fodor's Expert Review Alaska Native Heritage Center

Greater Anchorage Native American Site Fodor's Choice

On a 26-acre site facing the Chugach Mountains, this facility provides an introduction to Alaska's Native peoples. The spacious Gathering Place has interpretive displays, artifacts, photographs, demonstrations, Native dances, storytelling, and films, along with a gift shop selling crafts and artwork. Step outside for a stroll around the adjacent lake, where seven village exhibits represent 11 Native cultural groups through traditional structures and exhibitions. As you enter the homes in these villages, you can visit with the hosts, hear their stories, and try some of the tools, games, and utensils used in the past.
