  • One of the top places to learn about the history of Alaska and information on activities if you're visiting. Staff is very nice

  • One of the best visitor center/museums I've ever been. Very informative and super helpful staff. The design of the museum is really great and you feel like visiting a real salmon house. This is one of the best experiences I had in Fairbanks. I even prefer this museum to alaska university musuem.

  • A small but special Visitor center. A good exhibition to look at if you are interested in wild lives, cultures, and history of alaskans. Come at the right time if you want to check out the souvenir shops. A variety of brochures and Certificates of your visit are offered! Definitely check out the back of the building as well.
