Opened to the public in February of 1999, the Inupiat Heritage Center is a museum in Barrow in Alaska. The center commemorates and recognizes the contributions of Alaska natives to the history of whaling in the state. It is home to a wide variety of artifact collections, a library, a gift shop and a traditional room where authentic crafts are demonstrated and taught.

The Inupiat Heritage Center is owned and being managed by the North Slope Borough. The center is one of the many associated partners that engage in spreading the story of commercial whaling in the United State. Different Park partners conduct but collaborate in an array of educational and informative programs and activities.

Overall, the Inupiat Heritage Center recounts the story of the Inupiat people who then struggled for thousands of years in one of the most harsh climates and conditions on Earth. And if you want to get to experience this fun and educational means of learning about the Inupiat people, visitors should bring raincoats, sweaters or light jackets, warm boots and heavy parkas with hoods.
