9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

 The Alaska Native Heritage Center offers a unique experience for each visitor to learn and explore the traditional and contemporary ways of Alaska’s Indigenous cultures. More than a museum, the Center is a place to engage and interact - to ask questions and discover. Our living cultures continue to flourish in a changing world and although our world changes, our values and traditions remain. Your visit today will take you on a journey through 10,000 years of Alaska Native history and culture through art, dance and Native Games demonstrations, exhibits, traditional Native dwellings, movies and more. 

We are honored that you have chosen to learn more about our heritage. Join us in celebrating and sharing our cultural tradition. We welcome you!
