This museum on the grounds of the Univ of Alaska Fairbanks is well done. They have a lot of good artifacts and art. You can view each region of the state and learn about the different areas. Upstairs has a nice art gallery.

We went to the Museum of the North and had amazing views of the mountains far away. You can also watch airplanes take off and land.

I stopped here for a picture in front of the temperature sign. It was too warm at 65 degrees. The REAL FUN is in the winter in 45-50 BELOW ZERO temps in nothing but skimpy clothing.

Spent several hours in the museum, great displays, excellent movies, good people running the counter and helping out. College students no doubt. Beautiful campus, high on a hill. Also went the "LARS" (off site) Large Animal Resource center.
