The University of Alaska Museum of the North is a thriving visitor attraction, a vital component of the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the only research and teaching museum in Alaska.

The museum's research collections - 1.5 million artifacts and specimens - are organized into 10 disciplines (archaeology, birds, documentary film, earth sciences, ethnology/history, fine arts, fishes/marine invertebrates, insects, mammals, and plants) and serve as a valuable resource for research on climate change, genetics, contaminants and other issues facing Alaska and the circumpolar North.

Prehistoric exhibits include fossils and the remains of a Blue Babe - an extinct Alaska steppe bison. Also featured are the partial remains of a 21,000 year old mammoth.
