Fairbanks opened the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center in late September.
Located on the banks of the Chena River in downtown Fairbanks, the center is named after Morris Thompson, a distinguished Alaskan better known for building bridges.
The new center will also house the Fairbanks Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The primary focus of the center is to encourage visitors to explore the cultures of the Interior and learn about travel opportunities in Interior Alaska.
The center is currently building an Alaska native and cultural exhibit that will be unveiled in May.
