CHT01 Native Heritage Center Tour from Anchorage

  • Erfahrungsberichte

Setting out from your hotel in Anchorage, your guide will show you the sights around town. We'll visit the original Anchorage town site, the Earthquake Park with the monument to the great quake of 1964 (where you can see real earthquake damage!), and Lake Hood - the busiest private seaplane base in the world.

We'll cruise through the once "red light" district, before heading out to the Alaska Native Heritage Center. The cultural center and museum is an exciting place where people can come to expand their understanding of Alaska's 11 major cultural groups. Entrance to the Center is included in your tour, as are the personal experiences and knowledge of your guide who will accompany you through the center. Here we'll see a village of life-sized housing replicas from ancient Alaska native cultures, and have the opportunity to watch some native dancing, some native Olympic games, and even learn a few moves!

There are also museum exhibits, arts and crafts, and one of the best authentic shops in all of Anchorage for traditional art, books, jewelry and crafts. From here, return to Anchorage where drop offs will be made at several hotels.

Tom: We visited the Alaska Native Heritage Center on our first day in Alaska, and it was outstanding! I'm generally not a huge fan of "cultural" centers and museums, especially in a more outdoorsy destination like Alaska, but the native culture is such an essential part of the Alaska experience. Inside the building, there is a theater, and beautiful exhibits depicting native life throughout the state. In the center, there is a performance area, and we watched, mesmerized, as a narrator and young people reenacted native songs, chants, drumming and dances. It was wonderful! Outside, you walk around a small lake, where the houses of the various native peoples have been recreated. There was a young person in each house to describe the structure and furnishings and answer questions. They were so informative and engaging, I spent a lot of time talking with each of them. I highly recommend a visit to the center and get a great first impression!
