We didn't spend much time in the center. It was very nicely set up and there were some interesting displays and dioramas. The area around the center is also interesting to visit.

The exhibits were excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed them. Stayed at the Westmark and found the walk enjoyable. The volunteers could not help with dinner suggestions.

Starting with a warm and friendly greeting, this free museum in downtown Fairbanks was a great experience. Whether you want to buzz though in an hour, or stay for several hours to absorb more, there is something for everyone. Part of the museum takes you through the very different four seasons; other parts include videos, walk-in exhibits, etc.

Definitely worth the visit. Small but nicely done and very informative. My only disappointment was that I wanted to get photos taken in traditional clothing, that was unavailable for some reason. All staff was nice yet somewhat limited in knowledge when asked about local attractions.

We spent a good portion of 2 hours at this center. Very educational and good exhibits in the museum. We watched all the videos playing in the museum - worth every penny ... Oh wait a minute the entry is free.

This is a good place to start for area information in and around Fairbanks. We attend a nice talk by 2 Native Americans and the small exhibit they had on the history of the area was well done. Nice helpful people there too. The Museum of the North at the university offers more, though, and is also well worth a... More

Friendly volunteers answer any questions you have about inland Alaska and Fairbanks, in particular. There is an excellent four seasons exhibit about life in Alaska. Start here!
