Alaska Native Heritage Center
The Alaska Native Heritage Center offers a glimpse into the rich culture of Alaskan natives. The center offers a variety of experiences - from listening to ancient oral traditions shared by a village elder to learning from a master artisan. Alaska's first people have been living here for over ten thousand years, and their stories are vivid and important. Join in a dance performance and stroll around Lake Tiulana to learn about ancient village life in five authentic village exhibit sites. Open daily: 9 am - 6 pm.
Take advantage of the Alaska Culture Pass and save 20% off admission to both the Anchorage Museum and Alaska Native Heritage Center.
Alaska Native Arts Gallery
Alaska Native cultures are vibrant, various and very much alive. The Alaska Native Arts Foundation is a non-profit corporation founded in late 2002 to broaden understanding of, and stimulate demand for, Alaska Native art. We formed this foundation after realizing how little awareness there is about Alaska’s Native people, cultures, and art forms.
