This relatively new museum is located in historic City Hall, at 410 Cushman
Street. Constantly changing displays include personal artifacts loaned by the community
featuring the gold rush era and mining in Fairbanks.
Visiting between May and February? You can still see world champions
constructing elaborate ice carvings. The large screen presentation is followed by a chance
to look at ice carvings in comfort. This display at second and Lacey is housed in what was
the first movie theatre in Fairbanks.
Anyone planning a trip to the back country, or just interested in
learning more about Alaska's great outdoors will want to visit here. The center is in the
