Aurora Ice Museum

Chena Hot Springs Resort

Home to the world’s largest year-round ice environment, the Aurora Ice Museum! It was created from over 1,000 tons of ice and snow, all harvested at the resort. The museum was completed in January 2005 and stays a cool 25° Fahrenheit (-7° Celsius) inside. Keeping the museum icy cold in the heat of summer comes from the patented absorption chiller, the first of its kind in the world used for this purpose! Parkas are available free of charge to use during your tour. 

Cell phone service at the Resort is limited to ACS Alaska and Verizon networks. AT&T, GCI, Sprint, and T-Mobile do not work at this time.

Adult (ages 12+) $15

Youth (ages 6-11) $10
