Scenic City Tour
Exclusive Alaska Native Heritage Center Tour
Salmon Berry’s exclusive tour of this interactive museum offers one of the best introductions you can get on Alaska culture, enriching the rest of your travels around the state—and it’s much more in-depth than the regular museum visit you could do on your own. It covers the history and lifestyles of Alaska’s main native cultures: Athabascan, Inupiaq/St. Lawrence Island Yupik, Yup’ik/Cup’ik, Aleut, Alutiiq, and the Eyak, Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian peoples. But rather than just look at exhibits behind glass, you’ll get to explore authentic, life-sized village dwellings, complete with fascinating artifacts, like a story-filled totem or the whale bone arch. And you’ll do so outdoors—depending on the time of year, you might even get to use snowshoes. The visit ends with a film and traditional tea.
