  • We had an in depth experience in Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitor Center. We were able to understand and value the works of art of the Alaskan natives. It felt like going inside a time machine and brought us back to a time of raw cultural practices which made people resilient in a challenging environment. Cindy and the rest of the staff were so informative and friendly.
  • Def a great stop to learn about everything going on in Fairbanks. Lots to see inside. Plus a movie about Fairbanks plays ever 30 mins. Nice restrooms and common area to just warm up if it’s freezing outside. The staff is amazing. SHERRI in there knows her stuff. She helped us a lot to learn about the lights and checking the stats on them. She’s super knowledgeable of the area. Ask for her if you go, super friendly.
