Visitors will have an opportunity to experience American Indian culture in a fun and festive setting.
Each day visitors can attend events where they learn about weather and animals in the arctic, watch performances by Yup’ik dancers, enjoy book readings and participate in hands-on activities in It’s Your Turn: Arctic Spirit, a gallery where kids can explore and learn about the current exhibition, Yua: Henri Matisse and the Inner Arctic Spirit.
