You’ll find a lot more than artifacts in glass cases at the Alaska Native Heritage Center. The ANHC celebrates the diversity of native Alaskan cultures that are still alive and vibrant today. There’s a performance hall that showcases traditional native dance and other events and outside the building, native guides demonstrate various aspects of native life, such as hunting and fishing. Impressive artwork, tools, and kayaks round out the displays inside.
It’s worth buying the culture pass joint ticket, which includes admission to the Anchorage Museum of History and Art and a shuttle bus between the two. The AMHA showcases the history of Alaska alongside local art, a library & archives, natural science, and travelling exhibits - now with a planetarium too.
