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.

The Matisse exhibit runs through Feb. 3 and explores the surprising artistic and spiritual connection between the great 20th century French modern master, Henri Matisse and the Indigenous people of the Arctic.
