We only had a brief time to see anything of historic interest in Fairbanks before we had to catch a flight. Hotel clerk suggested Pioneer Park. It looks tacier from the outside than it really is. Many of the buildings are authentic-- relocated from other areas-- rather than simply reconstructions. We barely mised the start of a film about the gold rush, and the sign on the door said absolutely no admission after the film started and we couldn't stay for the later showing, so missed that, but there were some interesting displays in an adjoining room of the same building, and there was no admission charge for that (donations requested). We would have gone into the airplane museum, which cost only $2, if we'd had more time (we peeked in the front door and saw several old planes). Pioneer Park had the feel of a large community park with gift shops and historic displays. We spent litle time in Fairbanks in between arriving by train and departing by air, so can't compare Pioneer Park with other attractions in the city.
