Upon reaching the park I was given a flyer which was very informative and helped me in getting around the place. Though the place was filled with tourists, it did not seem uncomfortably crowded as the park was stretched across a large area .There was no admission fee to enter the park, but they did charge a small nominal entrance fee to a couple of its museums.
The first place that caught my attention was the Alaska Native museum. Upon entering I was overwhelmed by the number of artefacts present there. The Alaskan mural on display was quite a feast for the eyes. It was a good opportunity for pictures and memories. The park also had various other attractions like the Bear Gallery, the Palace Theatre, the Pioneer museum, the River Boat Nenana and a crooked creek railroad. For a person who loves history, this place is quite intriguing.
Whilst inside the park, you do not realize that time flies, looking at historic building, ships, train cabooses and the little shops with native crafts will keep your mind totally occupied. The tourist info booth was helpful and had several suggestions for what to see during our day's visit.
After all the walking and exploring, hunger set in and I headed to the popular Alaska Salmon Bake. The meal there was simply sumptuous!
My adventure at Pioneer Park finally came to an end. With a whole bunch of photos and a ton of information I headed to my next location. The Alaska land Pioneer Park was like the Disneyland of Fairbanks!
