Museum of the North
The Museum of the North at the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus exhibits the natural, artistic, and cultural heritage of Alaska and the circumpolar North. The museum first opened in 1929. During our visit the museum was hosting a special exhibit on polar dinosaurs.
Late-Cretaceous dinosaur fossils were found along the Colville River, about fifty miles west of Prudhoe Bay.
Other fossils, including "Blue Babe", a mummified steppe bison preserved by the permafrost.
Indigenous communities: Western arctic coast (Inupiaq and Yupik), Interior (Athabascan), southwest (Aleut and Alutiq), south central (Eyak and Alutiq), and southeast (Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian).
