A fun and interactive way to learn about Alaskan natives’ culture.

You do not want to miss this interactive museum when you visit Anchorage, Alaska! It is fun for all ages and very family-friendly. This center was created when the Alaska Federation of Natives unanimously voted in 1987 to build a cultural center. It took years to raise money for the center, but it was finally built and in operation by May of 1999. The center honors and provides education regarding the heritage of eleven major cultural groups found in Alaska. The center is located among 26 acres of gorgeous forest, and there is an expansive indoor section that offers interactive demonstrations and activities for the entire family to enjoy. 

At the Alaskan Native Heritage Center, you will come to know Alaskan natives as you watch presentations given throughout the day by members of various tribes. You can watch them demonstrate their native dances, music, games, and learn how all of those happen to contribute to their culture today. You can also dive into their ancient culture by taking a stroll through six different tribes’ life-size villages. Learn about their history in the theater or the Hall of Cultures, complete with native Alaskans selling homemade art for you to take home and proudly display! There is no better place in the state to educate yourself on all of the remarkable tribes and their various traditions and customs.
