We loved it but after a couple hours (maybe less) you're brain will have an information overload if you try to take in everything. We liked the mineral and animal collections and the displays concerning the different ethnic/tribal groups of native Alaskans.

Our first stop on our trip to Fairbanks. It’s very well done, informative, and we paid a small fee to watch a movie on the Northern Lights that was well worth it!! Enjoyable visit.

I live in Fairbanks ALASKA and visit this museum regularly. There is quite a lot of interesting history told. A great section on the Gold Rush and a spotlight on Blue Babe, the mostly intact Stepp Bison. A wonderful place to take kids or adults.

The Museum of the North should be on your to-do list for sure. The exhibits are unique and detailed. All that I had read about Alaskan natives and Alaskan history came to life after seeing the exhibits. Definitly worth your time.
