AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Devoted to the lifestyles of Alaska’s native peoples, this center’s building is a relatively compact facility in which brief exhibits and regular performances depict the Athabascan, Yupik, Inupiaq and coastal nations that have lived here for millennia. The centerpiece of the facility is a lovely path around a small pond, through birch and cottonwood forest, that leads to a half-dozen authentic dwellings—most of them heavily earth-insulated against the harsh climate. Free shuttles bring visitors from downtown in the summer.
