Morris Thompson Cultural & Visitors Center, Fairbanks Reviews - Write a Review
This is a must stop place to visit while you are in Fairbanks. Filled with great exhibits and so much information about the history and culture of Alaska. This place was so much more wonderful than we expected it to be. Plan to spend at least 2 hours here, but you could easily spend much more time exploring the exhibits and talking with the friendly staff.
Best place to visit when new to the area. So much information and the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Winter or summer you will be able to gather information on any activity you are interested in exploring. Send this information you find here to friends wanting to visit Alaska!
Love this place! Everyone should visit here at least once while in Fairbanks. They have an awesome museum, LOTS of great information on things to do in Alaska, a gift shop, and so much more. It's also free!
We spent quite some time here just reading about and listening to the history. The staff were also very helpful
Nice displays and interesting films plus an information center: all for the price of free. Definitely a good place to start on a visit to Fairbanks. Check out the Aurora movie.
