I was really delighted to see and learn about the culture of the Inuts. And it was really wonderful to spend some time looking at the magical arts

Expo Alexander is great and frankly very well done, the museum restaurant is nice too, we loved it

Exquisite interior design aesthetics but many art galleries were closed for maintenance
