Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a wonderful find! The staff was very friendly and helpful. They helped prepare our purchase for bringing home on the plane. Many beautiful items to choose from made by wonderful artisans. We felt the prices were reasonable as well. If looking for that special Alaskan item, I would highly recommend Kantishna Gallery.

It's an OK gallery to visit. Three Bears Gallery (just a few doors down) is much more interesting! Do go visit Three Bears Gallery and take a look at Shane Lamb's breathtaking photography!

Honestly, Jeremy’s gallery blew me away. We call all the little crap shops that sell the little Knick-knacks “sh** shops” and we were just killing time and enjoying a little shopping when we walked into his gallery It’s so good. All local, he knows all the artists and their work before he puts their work in his gallery, and we were so glad we walked in. Not only that, but Jeremy was so super helpful and nice. He was really patient with me while I decided what I wanted to take home, and he gave me a great deal on several pieces. I ended up taking 3 home! If you’re in Denali and you want some great local Alaskan art (of so many kinds; woodwork, metal art, Christmas ornaments, paintings, photos, etc), be sure to stop by and visit his gallery.

It also happens to be right next door to some of the best Asian food in Alaska!

The shop is located on the main little "shopping street" right across the big Lodge Hotels. The gifts are made-in and made-by Alaskans and there are many different sizes and styles. We ended up buying more than expected but are very very happy with our choices - would defintely recommend!

What a beautiful gem in the heart of the tourist lights. Not only was the artwork beautiful, but the folks working there were warm and welcoming. They made me and my family feel excited to be there. Throughout visiting Alaska it is easy to get caught in the sea of salesmen trying to talk you into a buy. These folks genuinely cared about us, our trip, and our experience there. I would recommend a visit by anyone who comes though!

My fiancé and I stumbled upon this place after hitting the local outdoor store. We generally detest gift shops and think they are a rip off but this place has an excellently curated mix of local goods by local artists. The art is wonderful. I wouldn’t even bother going into any other shop, this one is the best. Not to mention, the customer service was friendly and engaging. You can tell they are more interested in showcasing the artists’ work than making a buck off of you.

This was very far on the journey we took this day into the park. Was a little disappointed in the food but the ground and area very clean and nice. The gold mining was fun.

I am so glad we found this place in the sea of tourist trap stores.This one is the real deal if you like quality pieces you can actually afford. The artwork is from artists all over Alaska- so many of the other stores in Denali have "made in Vietnam" on many of their items. You won't find any of that at the Kantishna Gallery.

An example: there was this really cool metal Moose wind chime that I actually saw in another shop in Anchorage- they were asking $135. In the Kantishna Gallery the price was $68! Rest assured that the artwork you find in this shop is real and for a fair price.

We got a chance to meet Justin the owner. He's incredibly nice, friendly, and informative. He told us about a great camping place in Chugach we hit later in our trip. We didn't want to risk traveling with our pieces so he was kind enough to ship them out to us. They arrived well packaged and within a few days of our return.

For people who appreciate works made by local artists, this is your place. 5 stars.

Truly appreciate the kind words. We strive to provide a friendly, relaxed atmosphere for our visitors to the gallery. There are so many amazing Alaskan artists that we represent in our gallery. We enjoy keeping things local and supporting these creative people that survive the long winter months and work extremely hard over the long summer days! Please come by and visit if you are ever in the Denali region again.
