It was a quiet morning and no one was around. It was fun to meander and look at the variety of cabins that have been moved there. We both enjoyed the museum, the art on the top floor of the civic building, and the aviation museum. It looks like if you have an RV you can stay in their parking... More

We got the bus to Pioneer Park which is free to walk round. It is basically an outdoor museum as many old log cabins have been moved here from their original locations in Fairbanks. It is delightful to walk round. Some of the cabins are mini museums which are free to enter but donations are welcome. All the staff were... More

Has a fun time! There were lots of exhibits and a great train ride for just $2.00!! We got lots of pictures. Many of the displays were authentic equipment originally used to mine for gold.

This place has a train, a carousel and a playground, which my daughter loves! It's free to get into the park area and the little "mining town" area with shops, however you have to pay for the train and carousel rides, as well as for the mini golf. We have gone numerous times and it's been fun each time we've... More

It's free to walk into the park and the park in the lot. There are a few things to explore for kids like a big boat and feeding the ducks. Walking in through the old mine looking area would be nice to kids too. The putt putt cost to play and the pro course is a bit under-kept but the... More

Unfortunately we walked through after a visit to the Salmon Bake. Noting much was going on as they were shutting down. It seemed OK and a couple of the museums that we visited were very interesting and had good exhibits. We did not go in the ones with an extra admission fee. Most all the ships were closed. Go there... More

It is a small little park, essentially for children. The front desk lady was warm, and guided us. One of the must see destinations in Fairbanks.

Unique little place going back in time with original cabins from the early 1900's. Pioneer Park does offer some history lessons, shopping, cabins with a bedroom, kitchen and main room a family of 6-8 lived in back during the pioneering times that were moved here from the Fairbanks region. The whole park consist of historical cabins, railroad and locomotive plus... More
