This is a great place to learn about the Iditarod and the sled dogs. The free video is very informative, and they have some cool artifacts from years past. The gifts were reasonably priced and consisted of t-shirts, post cards, stuffed sled dogs, pencils, etc. We were a little disappointed that we missed the live sled dogs. The clerk said they only have live dogs during the summer. If you are in the area, even during the winter, it is still a cool place to visit.
