I take my small tour groups here every week. Every time it gets top reviews. Most people don't expect much from an auto museum in Fairbanks, Alaska but they are always so appreciative we went here. Check it out, you won't be disappointed!

My husband loves machines, I prefer plants and animals, but agreed to go along. I was amazed with all the history there, not just a bunch of old cars. In fact even all the antique cars were fun to look at.

A great kid area, great exhibits, extremely friendly staff, and very cool history and technology. We are not car buffs by any means but found the vehicles and the informative displays very well done and interesting-a great visit for sure!

The cars are amazing. All run, all are beautifully restored, and all have some connection with Alaska history. Spend a few hours, take a lot of pictures, and marvel at the detail and beauty of century old cars.

There is no guarantee to see the northern lights. It’s an atmospheric phenomenon and predicting it is not easy. It’s best to see in the winter when it’s dark clear and cold, in the summer it’s daylight 24/7 and in the 80s... More

Both Blue and Red bus routs take you near the museum. I believe that a taxi may be your only other way there. You may also want to rent a car for a day or two to visit Pioneer Park, North Pole and the many great restaurants... More
