Ice slide.

Fairbanks Ice Museum

There wasn't really much to see. Video was nice, before you get to tour the museum, kind of long, and very cold in theater -- so dress warmly. Then you get to look at the ice sculptures. I was expecting more, and I don't think it was worth the price of admission. The ice slide was cool, but that was really it.

The ice museum at Chena Hot Springs was much better.

Tours every hour. 20 minute video about ice sculpture competitions. Go inside a frozen oasis of sculptures. Ride down a slide of ice. See a carved bar, log cabin, dogsled team, snowmobiles, gold panning old man, animals and more.
