Vintage Cars and Fashion Collide in Fairbanks, and the Result is Spectacular.

Fairbanks' #1 attraction at Wedgewood Resort.
"This is the best museum I have seen, and the management is very professional and seems to know what the hell he is talking about. Should be on your bucket list if you enjoy really cool and expensive old automobiles that actually run among a lot of other old items, been there." - Wes Stidham

Visitors are astonished to discover this world-class collection of beautiful machines and fashions. The custom-built facility with an eye-popping assortment of Edwardian finery, Flapper dresses, Art Deco gowns, and some of the most visually stunning automobiles ever to grace America’s roads in the early 20th century. The museum’s 85 horseless carriages, steam cars, Roaring 20s speedsters, luxury classics, and rare autos such as Argonne, Compound, and Heine-Velox look like they just rolled off the showroom floor.

Woven among the vehicles and 100+ fashions are entertaining videos, large scale archival photographs, and exhibits showcasing Alaska’s wild automobile history.

Many of the cars are extremely rare, some being the only ones of their kind made or still surviving. These include a rare 1911 Everitt roadster, which visitors can climb into for photographs after dressing up in vintage dusters and hats. All but a few of the automobiles still run and are driven around Wedgewood Resort each summer.

Be sure to include the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum on your to-do list. There is no other attraction like it in Alaska!

“Absolutely the best museum we have ever been to - both for autos as well as regional history and vintage clothes. PLEASE do yourself a favor and go to this museum! You will NOT be disappointed!!”
