Aurora Ice Museum Tours

Sixty miles from Fairbanks, the Aurora Ice Museum draws more than 10,000 visitors every summer. A chilly -7° Celsius inside, it’s the largest year-round ice structure in the world. Designed in 2005 and carved from 1,000 tons of ice and snow by 15-time world ice art champion Steve Brice and his wife Heather Brice, on a visit you can hang out in the ice bar, check out the grand chandeliers made of individually-carved ice crystals (they change color every six seconds to mimic the Aurora Borealis), and walk around ice sculptures including a huge chess set and life-sized jousting knights. 

How is the Aurora Ice Museum prevented from melting during the hot summer days? Geothermal energy powers absorption refrigeration systems that cool the ice year round!

Practical Info

The Aurora Ice Museum and Ice Bar is open year round. Entry costs $15, and to order an appletini at the bar, in a goblet made of ice, also costs $15. Tours of the museum run every two hours from 11am-7pm. There’s a shuttle service from Fairbanks that’ll take you to the resort.
