They have so many different items to see. I like looking at the artwork from artist that have spent time in Alaska and have been able to capture it on their canvas. There is also a large number of fossils that have been found in Alaska.
This is a never miss attraction in Fairbanks Alaska,and probably one of the most liked museum's in all of Alaska. The presentation of Alaska history is amazing,plan on spending a whole day exploring this wonderful treasure !!.
