The museum building is stunning; inspired by icebergs, ships, snow-capped mountains and whales. We visited the Museum of the North to see the current exhibit commemorating the 100th year anniversary of the first ascent of Mt. McKinley. The exhibit was well organized and encouraged interactivity. The permanent collection includes art, animal collections and my favorite - gold, and its history. If you visit in the summer (when there is no possibility of northern lights), be sure to see the Aurora movie which is both beautiful and informative.
