It is a handsome place with wonderful exhibits, an ongoing program of relevant films, some shorter videos in and around the displays, dioramas of the countryside, detailing history, culture, environment, and wildlife. There was even a special photographic history of the Iditarod Race, with information and photos of former winners and multi-time participants in the iconic race. We spent about 3 hours absorbing as much as we could from this remarkable venue. There was no eatery in the center, so we struck out on the snow & ice- covered sidewalks to find some lunch—a few blocks away we entered the El Dorado Mexican restaurant and enjoyed an enormous taco salad—one could have been shared among the three of us. The kind waiter ordered a cab to take us back to the Best Western where we had to pick up our luggage and head for the airport.
