“University of Alaska, Fairbanks”

University of Alaska Fairbanks
Ranked #14 of 101 things to do in Fairbanks
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 10 October 2013

We liked the exhibits very much. The history of the native peoples, digging for gold and the Alaskan way of life. They had a huge bear (stuffed) inside the entrance which was amazing. The university is not far from the main drag & is easy to get to. In fact we toured the Creamers Wildlife sanctuary the same day. Loved watching all those Sand hill Cranes before they began their annual migration. We visited on a trip early August 2011.

Nice campus and I recommend the Museum of the North. I also liked to have a walk around the campus and they have a disc golf course that I tried out. Was not so successful on the course but I liked it anyway.

Really enjoyed the museum on campus. The view from the main lobby is stunning. The price is right and the staff very willing to help in anyway. Big enough to enjoy even when the tour bus rolls up. The aurora movie is very informative.

The museum of the North is a must see!! It is a gorgeous building and contains wonderful info. We really enjoyed the "Northern Lights" exhibit also there.

Two years ago we had a tour of the volcano research facility, which was really fascinating. The Museum is also very good.
