Free entrance to the park and a lot of entertaining options: historical exhibits (cabins and a boat), museums (about local personalities, pioneer life and air transportation), stores, mini golf, train ride, theater, food. Park is open 24hs, but not the attractions. You don't have to spend much time in it since it's all kind of "superficial". Pet friendly. Inside there... More

Train rides for the kids, multiple playgrounds, totem poles, volleyball, art museum available for anyone present, although we reserved a pavilion for our group. On display, a fighter jet, train car and river steamboat (not for playing on or walking through) make it a nice day for all ages. It is a good walk from parking area, but the park... More

A local all you can eat (sort of) that has only average food but plenty of it. We got the early season special of $18.00 per person (of course we also had to pay $8 for transportation). Give it a try but don't expect gourmet food.

Be prepared to spend a whole day here - you'll certainly find plenty to do, see and eat. Whilst there's no getting away from the 'tourist' element of this attraction, it nontheless provides very real and highly accurate historical and educational elements of attractions, including superb historical cabins, crafts and arts. It's great for couples and families, and is arguably... More

Pioneer Park is a central location for many activities in Fairbanks. The salmon bake is an excellent meal with a variety of options. When I've been there I also went to the small theatre located nearby that gives a fun show of life in early Fairbanks. The small buildings in the area are former businesses from around town, some of... More

Maybe just a bit touristy, but where else can you not just see, but "tour" authentic century old cabins that were and ARE a part of Alaskas history? Authentic native crafts, even made to order if not on hand. Best place ever to get THE most comfy hand made moccasins on the planet. If it is even a small part... More

This appeared to be a very interesting place to visit during the summer season. I enjoyed walking around and looking at all the turn of the (2000th) century cabins and the old stern-wheeler. Too bad all the businesses were closed for the winter season... All the historic cabins contain summer businesses and I understand there are great places to eat... More

Alaskaland is a great place to bring the family for an afternoon, with lots to see, shops, and usually some sort of fun special event going on.

Historical buildings relocated to the Park, crafters wares for shopping, a historic paddlewheel ship with an awesome display of Chena life. A great place to visit.

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
