  • We love this place! It’s perfect for a rainy day or for needing to spend some time in town between obligations. We have had a membership for years because the value of having a place like this in the wintertime is so worth it.

It has made paint and glue much more enjoyable for this family.
  • There is nowhere else in Fairbanks like it. Yes, it's not like Children's Museums in the lower 48, but they are doing the best they can with what they have. With that said they offer different exhibits and activities often. And Exhibits are often switched around. So that's always nice. Also we like getting a book at the end.
