The popular annual event takes place Sunday, June 13 from noon to 4 p.m. and features hands-on activities for kids of all ages under the big top tent on the museum’s lawn.
Activities include running a salmon migration obstacle course, making an Aleut hat, dissecting owl pellets, learning Eskimo dances with the Pavva Inupiaq dancers and other activities related to the museum’s exhibits and research collections.
