  • Mixed bag review. Would I make a trip specifically to go to the Aurora Ice Museum? Absolutely not. Would I go to the museum if I was going to visit the hot springs? Sure, why not. It's all just ice sculptures with no real history behind it so it's more like an ice gallery. Which is... *Cool* I guess. ❄
  • Fantastic hot springs! Great setup and a lovely drive. Highly recommend to spend a night here.
  • Really awesome to see some ice carving. Have a drink from an ice glass. The carvings were amazing to see. They did stuff with ice I couldn't even imagine.
  • My friend and I were in Fairbanks for a weekend and were trying to find something fun to do for the day. Surprisingly, this place is as fun for adults as it is for kids.
  • Museum was novel enough to be fun...after the mob of people initially leave. Not much of a 'tour' as no info was given about construction, cooling, carving, etc etc. Split the $15 cheap vodka and apple pucker 'tini' with my husband, way overpriced, but you should do it.. (To cranky AF 'guide' Emily, time for a job change...while I can totally see the frustrations you may face day to day... We're all not totally oblivious jerks.)
