  • Lots of interesting things to see here. One great interactive history&art museum. First time that I’ve seen a sign “please touch”!! One of the art work invite you to step and sit in it!!! Display and exhibition were carefully selected and designed to the smallest detail. I can feel that they put tons of thought into this museum. Great job!!!!

  • Very nice museum. While it's not a huge museum, it has a lot to see and has a fairly wide variety of content. Also has an art exhibit which is pretty neat. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Fairbanks.

  • Although it is a museum, it's more informative for professionals rather than public. Many of the rooms and experiences were closed when we were visiting. The documentaries were the best part of the museum and we learned a lot about the aurora in the show.

  • One of the nicest museums we went to. Lots of stuff to see and interesting history! Visited in December

  • This is a fabulous museum for all ages. Even if you only have one day to visit Fairbanks, it is well worth it for you to visit this museum on the UAF campus for a couple hours (you will wish you had more time to spend here though). There is so much to learn here and an amazing collection of local fine art. There is also a gift shop with some special crafts, and a small coffee shop with tasty snacks. And if Fairbanks is your first destination in Alaska, a visit here is a wonderful orientation to the natural and cultural history of the land.
