Great small museum with interesting artifacts from the Alutiig people. I really enjoyed watching and listening to the videos as Alutiig reminisced about earlier and present times in their lives.

This small museum presents an overview of the lives of native Aleutians and provides insights to the history, lives and transistion adapting to the influx of Europeans and then Americans. It is worth the visit to see their art and culture.
