The Museum of the North at the University of Alaska Fairbanks has been highly rated for many, many years. A few weeks ago, a huge new wing opened, and it is simply stunning. This photo was taken in the upper-level Rose Berry Alaska Art Gallery at 1:10 p.m. - I could easily spend 2 hours at the museum, and 3 would be better, making the $10 admission very good value. The Gallery of Alaska on the main level among is displays the state's largest public gold collection and many stuffed animals including the world's only Ice-Age Steppe Bison mummy.
