The ice museum is $15 per person, half that is you're staying in the hotel. The ice sculptures are really great. Bring your own jacket unless you want to wear the ones provided by the hotel. You can buy an apple martini for $15. You're really not paying for the martini as much as the ice glasses. I had one... More

A little expensive at $15 per person for a less than one hour experience but super fun. Start with a movie describing the art of ice sculpting. After the movie, you get to go into several areas where there are real ice sculptures. There is even an ice slide that you go down! Finish off the visit with an amazing... More

Didn't know what to expect here but was pleasantly surprised. It starts with a film presentation about ice sculpture which is a bit mundane and leaves you thinking what have I just spent my money on! However, give it chance! The sculptor then invites you to explore his ice sculptures which are truly amazing. This includes a bar, a house... More

An approximate one hour experience where you see an educational film, see ice sculptures up close and watch an artist at work.

We arrived to view the Aurora Experience in the evening and the Ice Museum was closed but the manager opened it up and showed us through which was a lovely thing to do. We got to slide down the ice slide and take photos of the sculptures with us beside them.

This is the Ice Museum located downtown, not at the China Hot Springs. It cost $12 for adult entry. They have a presentation lasting about 15 minutes, then you are allowed to go in and take pictures. They have a sculpture of ice jackets that you can stick your head in and take a photo, an ice snowmobile you can... More

Half an hour and the tour is done - it is a small place but the cravings are quite amazing. If you are not adequately dressed, they have jackets you can borrow. Once the explanation is done, you can roam about and choose to leave earlier than the stipulated time.Unless you have bout their appletini...that's pretty strong...I kept sucking on... More

My wife and I took a night tour up to Cheyna Hot Springs with Ronn Murray Tours to chase auras, marinate in the hot springs, and visit the ice museum. It was a great night! The ice museum is located adjacent to the hot springs lodge, which we visited first. The ice sculptures and lighting were impress, and it was... More
