June 27

Today was our first day of significant rain all day.  We took the opportunity to visit indoor attractions in Fairbanks.  We spent the morning at the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center.  In addition to a 40 minute movie on Northern Lights, they had many exhibits.

After lunch, we went to the University of Alaska Museum of the  North.  We saw three 30 minute films:  Discovering dinosaur bones in Alaska, Whale migration and research and another film on the Northern Lights.  They had an extensive art collection and many exhibits on the local people, local animals, dinosaurs and whaling.

The Brown Bear pictured stood 8ft 9in tall.
