An enjoyable exhibit that is free and gives a lot of information about Alaskan life. The walk through the seasons helps give a perspective on what it is like to live in interior Alaska.

Live presentation of music was worth the visit in itself. Local children and young adults do a wonderful job. Much more interesting exhibits than I expected. Well worth the visit.

Nice overview of Alaska nature and culture. The cabin in front of the museum is beautiful and interesting. Enjoyed the young Athabascans doing the native dances during a cultural show.
