Aurora Ice Museum

13 recensioni

Sixty miles from Fairbanks, the Aurora Ice Museum draws more than 10,000 visitors every summer. A chilly -7° Celsius inside, it’s the largest year-round ice structure in the world. Designed in 2005 and carved from 1,000 tons of ice and snow by 15-time world ice art champion Steve Brice and his wife Heather Brice, on a visit you can hang out in the ice bar, check out the grand chandeliers made of individually-carved ice crystals (they change color every six seconds to mimic the Aurora Borealis), and walk around ice sculptures including a huge chess set and life-sized jousting knights.

How is the Aurora Ice Museum prevented from melting during the hot summer days? Geothermal energy powers absorption refrigeration systems that cool the ice year round!
