fairbanks children's museum


Like many children's museums around the world, the Fairbanks Children’s Museum is committed to being a valuable and accessible community resource and provides a rich environment that stimulates children’s natural curiosity and creativity. Trained educators develop play-based learning, experiences, programs and classes for kids of all ages to explore multi-sensory, hands-on, active, and child-centered activities. Our interactive environment offers unique opportunities for discovery, invites free and joyful exploration, and encourages kids to engage and connect with the world.
