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.
For more information about the Fairbanks Children's Museum, call 374-6873.
