“Great little museum”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

This is a modest little museum specializing in the area called Berengia, the land bridge between Alaska and Siberia. There are enough stuffed and skeletonized animals and exhibits to make any age kid happy, a great little movie about the era and land, and the friendliest staff and "rangers" anywhere. If you're game you can try your hand at throwing a spear with an atlatl, using technology thousands of years old and still in use today.

“Best public washrooms in the North!”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Well worth seeing and thinking about. The movie theatre is comfortable and the informative video well worth seeing. The exhibits are great.

“WOW - so informative”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

There was so much to see and do. Our guide was very knowledgeable and share so many facts that it was hard to see everything that was there in one visit.
I also very much liked their very modern facilities.

“Small and intimate museum”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is a great diversion for a rainy day for both kids and adults. There are plenty of displays without it being overwhelming and the theatre presentations give your feet a break! The museum is well staffed and friendly, all of our questions were pleasantly answered. Check out the women's washrooms, I have never seen any public space with such a great restroom.
