Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum, Fairbanks, Alaska, USA
Our goal at Wedgewood Resort is to provide you with the perfect Fairbanks vacation experience. While here you’ll enjoy a combination of comfortable lodging, fabulous hospitality and preferred access to one of Fairbanks, top attractions – the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum.
Wedgewood Resort and Bear Lodge guests enjoy VIP access to this nationally acclaimed museum, where you’ll discover fabulous historic fashions and remarkable antique cars that show how automobile and clothing design evolved dramatically from the Victorian Age through the Art Deco era. See Alaska’s first car and explore the Territory’s unusual automotive history through exhibits, photographs and archival videos. More than 100 vintage costumes are on display, as well as special clothing exhibits.
Our collection features over 80 vehicles, including horseless carriages, steamers, electric cars, speedsters, cyclecars, midget racers and 30s classics. These include such rarities as an 1898 Hay Motor Vehicle, 1906 Compound, 1920 Argonne and 1921 Heine-Velox Victoria. Remarkably, all but a few of the automobiles are driven, making this a true “living museum.” Be sure to bring your camera – there’s even an automobile you can climb into for photos!
