Description:

Alaska Native Heritage Center - ANHC


Alaska Native Heritage Center opens for the 2016 Summer Season on Sunday, May 8th and runs daily, 7 days a week, through September 5th, 2016.


Feel the heartbeat of Alaska's indigenous people. Hear their stories, explore their history and discover a cultural heritage still living and thriving today at the largest cultural institution in Alaska, the Alaska Native Heritage Center.

The Alaska Native Heritage Center is an amazing interactive cultural experience. More than a museum, the Center provides an opportunity to explore the indigenous cultures of Alaska firsthand - cultures that continue to adapt to modern society, yet still maintain a vibrant identity for the Native peoples of Alaska.

Get an in-depth experience of their living cultures at ANHC through storytelling, artist demonstrations, Native dance performances, Native games demonstrations, movies and more. Choose to watch or take it to the next level and participate. Opportunities to create your own art, learn a Yupik dance or throw a spear await the more adventuresome visitor.

Outside of the main facility, a meandering wooded path surrounding a picturesque lake guides visitors through six life-sized ancient dwellings representing the 11 culture groups of Alaska. Cultural representatives at each site, share how Alaska Native peoples thrived in a harsh and unforgiving climate, what their daily lives were like and how their cultures live today in a changing world.

A visit to the Alaska Native Heritage Center is an unparalleled opportunity to explore a way of life unique to Alaska a memorable and must-see destination.
