Art, Culture & History
If you’re addicted to the History Channel, you stockpile old issues of National Geographic, or prefer to visit places where people practice customs different from your own, Alaska offers endless options.
Alaska visitors can experience the state’s unique Native culture through many avenues including totem carving, Native dancing, the blanket toss, traditional music, crafts and festivals as well as cultural and historical museums, heritage centers and academics. Whether you want to explore Alaska’s vibrant Native culture or other artistic and intellectual attractions like music festivals, local artisan handiwork, Russian iconography or museum exhibits, a long list of things to do and see awaits you.
Experience Inupiat culture in Kotzebue. Visit a coastal subsistence camp, shop for traditional crafts, and visit National Park Service Visitor Center. At Nome, relive the gold rush and pan for gold. Enjoy a dog sled demo on the Iditarod Trail.
