So much history and culture in one little place. A great place to put on your list of must sees. Within walking distance from downtown Fairbanks. Easy access to shops and river walkways.

Since I came here after going to the museum of the North I feel it didn’t have much to offer. It is free though. The best thing about this place was a ton of info on things to do here!

I knew very little about the native culture before visiting. The center helped me to appreciate the culture which enhanced the rest of my visit in Alaska particularly as we stopped along the way on our cruise.

Stopped in for information on the locations in the area and came out with other locations to visit. Also found out about the culture and living habits of those that live in Alaska and different parts.

Initially we just wanted to take a photo under the antler arch, but decided to go inside the center. Very glad we did! The center is very well done, with great displays of Alaskan lifestyle.

Lots of information about the surrounding area and displays that rival those of national and state park visitor's centers. This was much more than we expected. It's worth a visit!
