Lots of brochures and a well done short exhibit. For some reasons the films don't play on a continual basis, so you have to hit it just right if you want to see any of their films.

This is the place to begin your visit to Fairbanks. There is a wealth of material to help plan your stay. The museum is an excellent overview of the Athabascan Native culture. The tribal elders there are friendly & love to talk about their lives & culture.

Before you go around Fairbanks, visit to visitor center will give you all the information you need. Also, if you were lucky (blessed) enough to spot the Aurora, do inform them. This would be useful for other who come in inquiring about the place and the time when other witnessed the spectacle, and also you get a certificate, as a souvenir :) . The staffs are extremely friendly and resourceful.

We were very impressed with the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center. We viewed it primarily as a musuem since we didn't have research to do or need information about visiting the interior of Alaska. The exhibits were interesting and informative with lots of variety to keep you eager to see what was next. Loved the gardens outside and the "Antler Arch". Certainly worth spending a couple of hours.
