Alaska in all 4 seasons …
Oct 2021 • Family
If you want to learn Alaska per season combining with a very knowledgeable tour guide Clark, this is the place to be… the displays are nice too.

Free adventure
Sep 2021
FREE but very interesting and informative visit. They show how the Alaskans have lived and survived throughout the years. They also have several staff that have a wealth of knowledge. You get to walk through on your own so you pace yourself and send as long as you like.

Awesome FREE attraction!
Aug 2021
Outstanding FREE attraction that traces Alaskan history from early native peoples, through Russian settlements, right up to modern times, but the emphasis on on the native population and influence. Exhibits are extremely well done, professional, well designed and sequential. (warning: we accidentally entered the exhibits through the exits, because the signage was not real noticeable, so we did it backwards!) Many hands-on exhibits as well as historical videos.

Your first stop in Fairbanks
Jul 2021
This should be your first stop in Fairbanks. It combines an information center with exhibits on the history and culture of the area. The staff were very helpful and I learned about a free shuttle to visit the attractions in the University area. I enjoyed the museum exhibits, which are an excellent introduction to the Fairbanks area.

There was lots of information on Fairbanks. We listened to a free outdoor ranger talk that was very interesting and saw a huge vegetable garden.

An Unexpected source of delight
Sep 2021 • Couples
This was an unexpected source of delight! The museum is not huge, but it is very well done. The exhibits are informative and very interesting. This should be on the list of the most important sites in Fairbanks!
