Now Open

This winter, visit two museums at once.

The Fairbanks Children's Museum is partnering with the UA Museum of the North to offer a long-term exhibit in our auditorium that's open daily through April 30. You'll get access to new exhibits, an expanded creativity center, even birthday parties.
