Astounding collection of American cars dating from the 1890’s to the 1930’s. Wow! And nearly all of them still run! We enjoyed the handheld audio tour devices that gave information beyond the signs posted at each vehicle (and also period clothing ensembles). A roaming docent...More

I've been here several times. It's a great place to host an event, kids loved it too. I would say the only downfall is when I was looking to host an event of my own, it was a little out of my budget.

You wouldn't think that Fairbanks, Alaska, would be a great place to see antique cars, but this place is amazing. It also has clothes that people wore at the time, displayed with the cars from that time period. The signs explain how fashions and auto...More
