Tips for Families

Kids under the age of 5 will enjoy the Children's Area, with chalkboards, pretend animal skins, and some neat books to read. Tweens and teens will be intrigued by the indoor and outdoor exhibits, combining lifestyle with history, especially with Alaska Native teens taking part. Consider attending on a special event day, when dancing, drumming, and storytelling continue all day. While a daily schedule does include these activities, it's way more fun when other tribal members participate. Dress for walking around the outdoor space - it can be chilly. See if your kids can find the whale skeleton! Oh, and be sure to keep off the rocks near the lake - elders consider it disrespectful to climb on their sacred sides.

Suggestions for nearby family-friendly restaurants

Situated on the boundary of Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, the Native Heritage Center is near Tikhatnu Commons, a mall that has an Olive Garden and Red Robin, among other kid-pleasing restaurants.

My Kid's Review

My favorite thing to do is run around outside. I like the Clan House and the totem pole.
