Tips

  • The Museum's digital portable planetarium introduced "NASA Days," which includes planetarium shows for children illustrating grade specific science concepts.
  • The listening room on 2nd floor is relaxing
  • Beautifully put together. Very educational.
  • Walk up the stairs and look out the window: no artistry as perfect as Nature's
  • Loved the Listening Room (cleared my migraine). The art gallery had great contemporary artwork from artistd who work in Alaska. Fantastic selection of Native crafts and jewelry in gift shop.
  • Kids loved the Children's Museum!
  • Nice museum!
  • Get out your rock-vaporizing laser! Youve explored your scientific curiosities just like NASAs Curiosity rover on Mars. Stay curious and keep exploring. You never know what youll find..
  • Fairbanks' best museum. Local art, natural history and culture. Recently expanded and renovated. Don't miss.
  • Be prepared to spend some time. At least 2.5 hours.
  • The views are very nice, the exhibitions teach you about Alaskan wildlife and art.
  • Not only a beautiful museum; the exhibit that incorporates real-time aurora and tectonic plate feedback was sooo cool.
  • Great spot for a picnic (outside space not show, also available)
  • Lots of hands-on things for the kiddos to have fun with!
  • Great informative place. A must see.
  • I just visited and all the films were included as a flat price. So have enough time to check out all the shorts and pieces.
  • Wonderful building, very nice collection. And they sell inuit seal skin products!!
  • Many museums could learn from this one. Informative, engaging and beautifully laid out, this museum is a gem. The art gallery upstairs is the cherry on top.
  • This is one of the best natural science museums I've been to. All of the exhibits are very well done.
