Did you know that Fairbanks is the world's ice art capital? This museum, the first of its kind in the USA, was established at the Chena Hot Springs Resort to boost tourism. Most of the spectacular ice art you'll see here was created by 15 time World Ice Art Champion Steve Brice and his wife, Heather, a six time World Ice Art Champion. Complete with an ice bar, and ice chandeliers that mimic the Aurora Borealis, the museum has been a resounding success, with over 10000 visitors annually. It's open year round, thanks to a unique energy efficient cooling system that keep it alive even during hot summers.

Too much fun! Ice sculptures to explore and even touch after a short film that explains the art. Even a toboggan run (indoors!) to go down as many times as you want, all included in the price. The owner/operator will take your photos with your camera/phone while you pose. Well worth the visit.
We went in Spring of 2016 and it was incredible. My family and I had fun sliding down the slides and taking pics on the statues. We had a conversation with a long time employee Peggy about the museum. It was a memorable conversation that we still looking back upon fondly. I give this place 5 stars out of 5.
I liked the second half, but sitting thru he movie was tough. They really need to update the movie which must be at least two decades old. The owner was nice and engaging. I'd give the movie three stars and the exhibits four stars and the demo three stars. So like 3.3 stars. At fifteen bucks a head it's a good value, but fell a little below my expectations.
The video at the beginning was lackluster. It looked like it was made in Movie Maker or something. However, the actual ice sculptures were great. The ice slide was fun and there are great photo opportunities. The Chinese guide was also funny and skilled. I would recommend you go here if you are vacationing in Fairbanks.
Fun, small place. They will show you one small movie about ice scripting competition. After that a small tour at ice sculptures they have on site. Good for kids. Entry fees are cheap, probably around 15 bucks per person.
