Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center
Opened in the fall of 2008, the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center serves as the regional visitor center for Fairbanks and Interior Alaska. The Fairbanks Convention and Visitors Bureau, Alaska Public Lands Information Center and Tanana Chiefs Conference have teamed up to provide tools that will help make any trip a success. You'll find knowledgeable and friendly staff and volunteers, racks of informative brochures, daily vacancy listings, local walking and driving tours, telephone and Internet access and answers to all of your questions. In addition to trip planning services, there is a theatre showing free films and programs on Alaska's natural, cultural and visitor history and an exhibit hall featuring 9,000 square feet of museum-quality interpretive displays and dioramas depicting Interior Alaskan landscapes and seasons. The center also offers an artisans' workshop and demonstration area, an Elders gathering area, cultural and environmental education classrooms, outdoor recreational space, and an Alaska Geographic gift store.
