Enjoyed our visit here. The centre had a lot of information on Alaska so it was a good introduction to our 2 weeks there. Enjoyed the cultural show. I feel it could have been better advertised as it was poorly attended and I know other people did not know it was happening.

Our first stop in Alaska was Fairbanks. We had a limited time to spend in the city so we made this our first stop. It was interesting and informative. The staff also assisted us with restaurant recommendations and additional sites to visit. They also had plenty of information on the additional cities we were going to visit

This is a great little visitor center / museum. Lots of information about local activities and some great exhibits on the prehistory and history of the Fairbanks area. Worth the time to get "the lay of the land" so to speak and better understand what you're looking at as you explore Fairbanks.

This is where i send anyone asking questions as they have the information and nice staff to personalize the experience. True Alaskan experiences, a mini museum of sorts and a great place to learn the real story. Love the community events.

We enjoyed spending time here, seeing the exhibits. A lot of history here! Plus, they were running a video of an old Alaskan, living in the wilderness for years. Very interesting! And this museum is free!

Great experience, exhibits and presentation of the history of Fairbanks and the area. From the history of the Alaska pipeline to exhibits on how people survived in the area, this is a most stop.

It had all the info you could ask for on the local area and culture, great displays and exhibits. Best of all it was free supported by donations not admission fee.
