Interesting short stop to introduce the tourists to the history of the iditarod and how the dogs are raised. There are a few puppies to pet, a short sled ride on a dirt track in a cart, a movie and a gift store. It does...More

We loved this quick stop on our way to Anchorage. There's a movie and a gift shop, but spent our time doing better things. We played with the puppies and they were so adorable. Then we made a "donation" to do a dog team ride....More

Yes, there are puppies here and yes, you can take a sled dog ride around the track -- both enjoyable things. But the main event is the movie which describes the iditarod and how the dogs are born/bred for it. Fascinating. There's also a gift...More

When we were there, there was a dog team giving rides for a fee, and you could see puppies. The gift shop actually seemed bigger than the museum. The museum has some info on past winners, some sculptures and trophies, a stuffed dog, a sled,...More

The movie is worth the time to watch---30 min about how the real athletes of the race-the dogs, are trained and cared for during the event. Large gift shop too.

We were told dogs were there on other days but there were none for us. The building is a gift shop with some photos and a video. Stop.

You can play with some sled dog puppies, take a quick ride around the area in a dog sled with wheels. There is a gift shop with lots of dog and Alaska shirts, hats, etc. A film is available for viewing, too.

Beautiful grounds, lots of information, and a fun ride available with the dogs. We were even allowed to hold one of the pups!

We stopped here on our way to Denali, as I imagine many of their visitors do. It was worth the stop, but unless you are passing thru the area, don't go out of your way.The museum was interesting and the buildings on site to look...More

You are asking a political question I have no answer for, you might want a different platform. Just having moved here, I am not aware of the political problems.
