It features objects from the museum's fine arts and archaeology collections, photographs, loans from community members, video footage from the archives at UAF's Rasmuson Library, a virtual tour of historic Fairbanks, planning maps and a slide show of community-submitted images that show how we live, work and play in Fairbanks.
