Great experience. Definitely take their free (included in the entry fees) guided tour of the native village sites. I don't think I would've enjoyed the experience without it. Their presentation on native games was great too. The overall experience was very informative
The Alaska Native Heritage Center is an excellent source of cultural information and history of Alaska Natives. A great deal of preserving many historical items from different periods of history. The gift shop is a must visit if you are looking for Native ivory carvings. The Native youth that participated in the programs were great examples and there are smaller tables of crafts, clothing and jewelry that you can also purchase.
