Lastly, you can admire the awesome wildlife of this garden and also enjoy the sight of Giant Vegetables of Alaska that are actually famous around the planet.

Fairbanks Sights - Dog Mushing Museum

This is one of the rarest museums in this planet considering the fact that you will hardly find any dog related museums anywhere around the world. It is located inside the Historical City Hall of Fairbanks and has the Community Museum of Fairbanks in its proximity thus giving the chance to visitors to enjoy two museums under one roof. This dog mushing museum has many dog sleds, and various other equipments that are used during dog mushing.
