Lonely Planet review
In an architecturally abstract igloo-and-aurora-inspired edifice sits one of Alaska’s finest museums, with artifact-rich exhibits on the geology, history, culture and trivia of each region of the state. The most famous display covers the life and death of Blue Babe with all the precision and detail of a CSI episode. Babe, a 36,000-year-old bison, was found preserved in the permafrost by Fairbanks-area miners. But just how and why and by whom did this beast meet his end?
The museum theatre runs three films several times daily (admission $5): Dynamic Aurora is a multimedia look at the northern lights; Winter talks about, you guessed it, winter; and You are Here discusses the museum itself. Upstairs, the Rose Berry Alaska Art Gallery covers 2000 years of northern works, ranging from ancient ivory carvings to wood masks to contemporary photographs.
