  • The bar graph from Google say a person typically spends 1.5 hours here. Well if you're a car guy like me that number is ridiculously low. The cars are absolutely incredible. I had the best time wasting a Saturday and working the museum was very nice and knowledgable. If I get the opportunity to back to Fairbanks, this Museum is on the top of my list of places to re-visit.
  • Really well maintained collection of antique cars. They're all kept looking in like new condition. They only have cars up until about 1940 though.
  • The cars and vintage clothing was amazing! Loved the write-ups about each car. This is a must see. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed (and I'm not a car girl).
  • Loved it! There are so many cool cars from a time of forgotten auto history! This is a must see during a visit to Fairbanks.
  • This is a MUST SEE if you are ever in Fairbanks AK. Fantastic collection of care and period perfect clothing (by the owner's wife). Many Pebble Beach winners on display and they ALL run.
