Museum sights in Dalton Highway
- Sort by:
A world apart is the Arctic Interagency Visitors Center, on the opposite side of the highway to the Frozen Foot Saloon. This impressive $5 million structure opened in 2004 and features museum-quality displays about the Arctic and its denizens. It has ultrahelpful staff, a schlock-free gift shop and nightly nature presentations - the best show in town.
Once upon a time the Wiseman Historical Museum has purchased it and admits only its own clients. Those wanting erudition should instead follow the signs to the cabin of Wiseman's wiseman, Jack Reakoff, an engaging and surprisingly urbane trapper who sells crafts and will discourse at length about local history and wildlife.
