Located on the UAF campus is the University of Alaska Museum of the North - one of Alaska's finest museums. The architecturally innovative building was inspired by alpine ridges, glaciers, the Yukon River, and the northern lights. The museum is home to the Gallery of Alaska, which examines the geology, history and unusual aspects of each region of the state. Here visitors can view the museum's most famous exhibit, Blue Babe: a 36,000-year-old bison found preserved in the permafrost by Fairbanks-area miners. In the Rose Berry Alaska Art Gallery are northern works ranging from ancient ivory carvings to contemporary photographs. In the museum' theater, special programs are shown throughout the day, including an amazing multimedia presentation on the northern lights.
