Night at the Museum


Last night approximately 200 people braved the cold and came to the museum to support the Imagination Library. This festive event, which including wine and beer tasting, a silent auction and live music, was organized and sponsored by the Interior Builders Association. Our catering staff had quite a spread of hors d'oeuvres set amongst the cars and vintage clothing. The wine tasting table near the 1906 Compound was especially popular. I don't know what they were serving but clearly it was a hit!


It was great to have a crowd of new visitors in the building. Many Fairbanksans have no idea just how nice the museum is and it's fun to see their jaws drop as they wander past the cars. Alas, only a few folks were brave enough to throw on some dusters and climb into the 1911 Everitt for a photo (Dennis tried to wear a lady's hat but we wouldn't let him).

Kudos to the folks with IBA and many, many thanks to our awesome docents!
