MUST see museum! WOW! Plus the view from the campus! You can see Mount McKinley on a clear day! WOW. The museum is amazing. A life size Grizzly Bear to a small weasel, they had it all. Artifacts from the natives, stories...it's beyond words. I thoroughly enjoyed this museum and I am NOT a museum person. We spent probably 3... More

This is such an amazing campus! What a workout the students must get here with the hilly landscape. Thank goodness for the shuttles!

My professors were the friendliest, most patient, helpful, and inspirational of any... More

My husband and I were travelling in Alaska. Wanted to get our granddaughters sweatshirts from the University. Eveyone in the bookstore was so friendly. Even the other customers. After we left the bookstore, we walked around the campus. Beautiful. Clean.

We are weird in that we enjoy exploring college campuses when we visit somewhere new (mind you, this is only ONE thing that makes us weird). This is a fairly small college campus that is very clean and modern looking. It is built up on a hill so you have a view below. The museum is supposed to be great,... More

The weather was nice so we toured the campus. Only thing we saw worth a special trip was the museum. It is very nice and worth the price and effort

It was nice to go and take the kids around and enjoy the plants, flowers and walk over the bridge to find fish and all sorts of fun things, huts to hide in and bridges to play on.

The campus is clean and nice for walking. The Museum of the North is interesting. Scenic views of the Alaska Range on clear days.

This facility is located on the handsome modern campus of the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Displays cover the animals and people who have made Alaska home over the centuries, and their ways of existing in a harsh environment. Displays are interesting to both children and adults. Two to three hours should be allowed for your visit.
