  • Opened my imagination to the pioneering feat of settling Alaska. In addition to the cars, giant photographs from Alaska's past adorn the walls. 
  • They relate the history of cars with examples of clothing and you can even get dressed to get in a car of 1800.

  • 60 some cars and nearly everyone of them runs. perfection at its best! v-16 1932 Cadillac was great. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • I was very impressed seeing as how its in Fairbanks which is one of the most boring cities in the world. But it turned out to be one of the best car museums ive ever been to
  • The best auto museum I have ever been to in my entire life and I'm 73
