There's not a whole lot to see or do here, but I really enjoyed the live Athabaskan Indian music and dance program. Getting to participate is a plus.

This place was informative with maps and people to help you with all the info that you need. Clean bathrooms. A good place to leave your car and walk the riverwalk to the downtown area to sightsee and shop. A must stop

Your first visit in Fairbanks has to be to the visitors center as the staff are so knowledgeable and eager to guide you around what you should do and see when there. All the material you will need for info around the area is available here and they are open until late in summer including Sundays. The lady we met was so kind and informative and happy that we approached her for information. She took so much pride in explaining things to us. It is really rare to see this kind of dedication from staff these days.

This is by far one of the best cultural and visitor centers I've visited. The displays are informative and beautifully presented. There are numerous resources for those traveling to Fairbanks or anywhere in Alaska. They also have frequent performances be Athabascan natives doing dances and songs and telling the story of their people. It is one if the highlights of a visit to Fairbanks.

I was in Fairbanks on business. We wandered about downtown a discovered this center. The displays are very educational and the staff attentive. You can learn about what to do and see in Fairbanks, the history of Fairbanks, and learn a great deal about the native people and the early settlers in one spot and all for free.
