We had a bad weather day and decide to visit the museum at the University. We enjoyed the exhibits and movies that they showed that the day went by quickly. What a place to get to know Alaska people and their heritage.

This is the flagship campus in Alaska. It is beautifully located on a hill and is a lot of fun to explore. No journey to Fairbanks would be complete without stopping by the UAF campus. Be sure to get out of your car or camper and walk around the campus to experience it!

The Alaska University is a lovely campus on the hill overlooking Fairbanks. If I knew it was this nice 60 years ago when I went to college I might have decided to go here instead. It is worth looking at from an architectural viewpoint.

Definitely a must when visiting Fairbanks. Many displays depicting Alaskan way of life, artwork, and wildlife. Nice gift shop along with a small cafe, personnel available to help with Fairbanks information, and many free brochures. There is a small fee for parking as well as an admissions fee.

The museum was nice the cost is $12 per person and you have to pay for parking. Thought the cost was a little much especially when you have to pay for parking.
