Antique Car at a Museum in FairbanksTo set the scene, historic photos and videos are displayed that showcase Alaska as it emerges out of the early 20th century. The museum even shows off “alternative” vehicles such as early steam, electric and hybrid cars, horse drawn carriages and the first V16-powered engine. The exhibit holds over 80 vehicles, including rarities like the 1906 Compound, 1921 Heine-Velox Victoria, and more. Very few of the cars have ever been driven making it an Alaskan attraction to break out the camera for.

The museum also showcases vintage clothing and guests can see firsthand how much fashion has changed over the course of eight decades.

The collection holds over 130 dresses, suits, shoes, and accessories. It’s easy to imagine yourself as a beaded flapper in the 20’s or in a classic evening gown upon viewing these gorgeous creations.
