  • Our host Andy was fun and amusing. He let us look and take pictures in the ice sculptures and then demonstrated his terrific skills at sculpting.  more »
  • Andy is just the best. Loved the movie and then the freezer. He knows it all and puts on a great show. Loved touching the sculptures and taking my pictures with them. Great demo too.  more »

  • My wife and I definitely expected more. The museum has very few ice sculptures, maybe 10 that are centered around visitor interaction (sitting on, standing by for a photo, etc.) . The video shows a lot of amazing pieces that you would love to see in the museum, but that's not what they have. The video itself is very dated and mostly just a slideshow with narrative. The visit basically sells you the ice sculpting competition in March and how awesome it is....but it's September
  • It was an experience that we will remember for better or worse. It starts off with a 20 minute video that is composed of solely pictures that are zoomed in on. Later we embarked into the cooler where we took pictures and were encouraged to slide down a ramp of ice on a sled. Andy’s enthusiasm made this aspect of the tour worth it. Lastly we watched Andy carve a flower and message into a block of ice. So fun!
  • Deceptive from the Outside, cute little place. You will be in and out in an hour. My kids (14 and 9) loved it. There is an ice slide inside both the kids and adults loved. If you are in Fairbanks, it is a good bit of fun and the owners really make an effort to make the experience fun. There is a slight language barrier but not enough to dampen the experience.
  • Don't let the outside fool you. We were impressed with the short video and ice carving demonstration. The adults and kids both enjoyed touching and playing on the ice sculptures. This is a must if you are in the area. This is also wheelchair/powerchair accessible.
  • Pretty small spot, but very unique! An older film gives you info and pictures on the art of ice scuplting. Then you're free to take some pictures in set up scenes or sled down an ice slide. Coats available to borrow too!
