  • Fantastic blend of Alaska history, showcase of antique automobile craftsmanship, and clothing and jewelry fashion alongside all the cars. Great fun for me, my wife, and my kids. Our tour guide...

  • The attention to detail is beyond belief with showroom level restoration. It's worth every penny and then some to stop and spend a few hours taking a trip back to 1898-1936 and tasting the period...

  • An unusual combination of antique cars and fashion that works!! The attention to detail is unmatched. Top quality restoration, documentation, and display! Steven, a volunteer, has unsurpassed knowledge of the vehicles. Give yourself more time than you think you need in this museum. You will need it!
  • Wonderful collection of old cars from the 30s and earlier. The mannequins in period dress by the cars is a great idea. The employees are very friendly and knowledgeable, sharing pics and videos of many of these cars being driven. The fact that they're nearly all maintained in running shape blew my mind. What a surprise to find in Fairbanks!
