Lonely Planet review for Carrie McLain Museum
To the east of the visitors center on Front St is Carrie McLain Museum in the basement of the Kegoayah Kozga Public Library. Though there are displays on Native culture and local reindeer-cultivation efforts, the focus is the gold rush and Nome's history in the early 20th century. Don't miss the preserved body of Fritz the sled dog, one of the leaders of the famed 1925 race to deliver diphtheria serum to Nome, which was the inspiration for the Iditarod.
