Stop at Fun and Unique Museums in Alaska’s Interior Region

The Interior region of Alaska boasts some one-of-a-kind museums like the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum in Fairbank. It showcases a fascinating collection of rare pre-World War II automobiles like the 1898 Hay Hotchkinss and a 1917 Owen-Magnetic with an electric engine. In addition to the automobiles, the museum displays vintage clothing spanning eight decades. Visitors can don Edwardian clothing and pose for a picture in front of a replica of the Sourdough Roadhouse.

The Aurora Ice Museum in Fairbanks is the world’s largest year-round ice environment. Featuring a masterfully sculpted winter wonderland complete with polar bear bedrooms and jousting knights, champion ice carver, Steve Brice, delights visitors of all ages with hand carved local ice. The Museum is lit by colorful chandeliers and an Aurora Borealis display is played nightly in the adjoining Vintage Theater.
