This museum (Visitor Center) is small but is packed with lots of information. The staff is very friendly and is very willing to talk and impart even more information. It is in the center of town so it is in a good location.

Small museum in Nome Alaska with free entrance. Nice exhibit of ancient animals & local artefacts. Short videos of local history are played in a viewing lounge. A very nice friendly museum & worth a visit. Has toilets inside.

This is a worthwhile stop along the main street of town. The displays attractively interpret the geological marvel that we call the "Bering Land Bridge" so important to the early settlement of North America.

This is a small, little shop on main street but has some great historical pieces and are willing to stop and chat about any of the local history.

A must see while in Nome, lots of interesting facts. Easy walk for anywhere in town. Can't miss the building it is the one with the huge Polar Bear carving at the entrance.
