This museum (Visitor Center) is small but is packed with lots of information. The staff is very friendly and is very willing to talk and impart even more information. It is in the center of town so it is in a good location.

Later we went to the Visitor Center in Nome which had interesting exhibits. We had rented a car and the ranger on duty suggested a scenic route to drive (one of the 3 roads outs... More

I spent about an hour and a half here talking with the park Ranger about people, culture, etc around the preserve and in Nome. Very nice place to visit while in Nome. It's right along front street near the Iditarod finish line. I also watched a movie here on the National Parks.

Small museum in Nome Alaska with free entrance. Nice exhibit of ancient animals & local artefacts. Short videos of local history are played in a viewing lounge. A very nice friendly museum & worth a visit. Has toilets inside.

That so many prehistoric boreal animals lived in this region as the sea was lower. Great maps and illustrations of a part of history that is very important.

This is a worthwhile stop along the main street of town. The displays attractively interpret the geological marvel that we call the "Bering Land Bridge" so important to the early settlement of North America.

Worth a visit to make your own mind up. Friendly staff. Ask questions. A very nice gift shop. There are no cost nature trips available ask for the schedule. Exhibits are nice now a bit dated several years old. I think this can be a bigger community resource if staff put on their thinking caps.

This is a small, little shop on main street but has some great historical pieces and are willing to stop and chat about any of the local history.

A must see while in Nome, lots of interesting facts. Easy walk for anywhere in town. Can't miss the building it is the one with the huge Polar Bear carving at the entrance.
