We love spending time at Alaskaland. The small cabins are all original to Fairbanks and some are over 100 years old. The shops in the cabins always have the best Alaskan gifts and at good prices. The playground is great for kids and the train ride is fun and informative. There are always good musicians performing in the gazebo in... More

Great park, fun activities happening during my visit. Very different from my hometown that was what I most enjoyed about this part. I also liked the different flags in the park that represented the different countries

Pioneer Park is a great afternoon family park. There is a lot to do, from playing on the monkey bars to Kayaking down the Chena River. Be sure to go to the far end of the park. There is a dock by the river and a shop that with kayak, canoe and bike rentals. A great way to see Fairbanks... More

I like the way all the buildings were moved from other parts of Alaska....I enjoyed the Aircraft museum and the train ride around the park. The stern wheel steamer was interesting especially the diarama's inside. We liked the moving theater presentation of the 49ers and miners that tried to make it to the gold fields. Plus how many died in... More

Summer in the interior is a Wonderful thing and having this great location to take the family is sure a nice option. Although open in the winter, most of the park is dormant, but Pioneer Park in the summer has Much to offer! The kids will enjoy the train ride and the adults will enjoy the shops and history.

It's ok, but its age is really showing. Maybe the town should float a bond issue for renovating it. I really liked the dioramas inside the old riverboat. Too bad they've been vandalized!!!!

So, this place rocks. Like, seriously rocks. They took old, historic buildings from the area and stuck them all in one place and filled them with different artsy things and gift stores. The houses or buildings have their histories posted outside, and one is so awesome it's just this Kitty lady's old house, with all her old stuff being a... More

A little village between the airport and downtown. This is what every city should have, a free entertainment area with a little history, a little shopping, and places for kids to play. The park is accessible year around, but the shops are only open during the summer season. Theater productions in both the larger and smaller theater are all year.... More

Plenty to do that doesn't kill the budget: entertainment, food, stores, history, etc. Definitely worth the visit.

We went during the winter time so the cabins are closed. However, they put up Christmas lights on them so we still end up spending at least an hour there to take pictures. But make sure you dress warm. Our toes were almost frozen and we were forced to go back into the car because of the cold.
