Excellent display of culture of the region. While I was there, a local blue grass/celtic band was playing, and that was fun. There's also a nice little gift shop, and they have everything you need to plan your Fairbanks visit.

Excellent place to get tourist information and it contains a small museum exhibit. Good location very close to downtown and right on the Chena River.

Any brochure you can imagine for the area is displayed on their racks here. The building is quite nice and volunteers are ready to answer questions and help out.

this is a must stop for information and resources but also exceeds your expected visitors center with the addition of the cultural center that does a fantastic job at conveying the area, lifestyle and history, people and places of and around fairbanks. there is a gift shop - it wasn't open at the time that i was there as well...
