We got in late and I guess we rushed a little but still covered most of the museum and the gift shop of course. Well worth the visit.

A bit out of town, west part of the city. Modern facility that had a museum that covered all things Alaska, and an upstairs art museum. Although comprehensive, the museum was a bit confusing. They blended lots of different things into a small space. Art...More
The museum had some great displays about Alaska's history, plus some art work by Alaska residents, but we really wanted to visit the room where you can listen to seismic activity all over Alaska. Unfortunately, it was closed. Maybe next time....
You will have a very good overview of the Fairbanks area and history of the area. There is also an Art expo on the second floor. Plugins for your car in the winter.
the blue baby was the treasure of the museum. very impressive. the museum also made it very educational that a lot of things was put there so people can learn a lot from it. The view outside the hotel was also very nice.
Take time to visit the Museum of the North at the University of Alaska. There are several exhibits you are unlikely to see elsewhere.
Beautiful presentations. Saw a movie about the Aurora that was very informative. All of the displays are tastefully presented Must pay for parking and an entrance fee.
