Among Fairbanks Alaska hotels, no destination offers a home away from home like Wedgewood Resort. Our spacious, condo-style one-, two- and three-bedroom suites are perfectly suited for extended stay business travelers and vacationing families, offering amenities that include fully equipped kitchens, separate dining areas and large living spaces.
During your downtime, spread out in your suite. Roam away from crowds along the boreal forest trails on the property year-round. Head over to marvel at the world-class Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum. Chase the aurora steps from your door. Work out in our fitness facility. Meander Creamer’s Field next door. In the summertime, ramble peacefully around the grounds among the flowers and outdoor displays.

The Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum features an impressive array of vintage automobiles and other rare objects at Fairbanks’ Wedgewood Resort. It also has the distinction of being a “living museum” with operable cars, most of which cruise around the 105-acre resort during summer months. “Our goal is to create an immersive experience for visitors who come to Fairbanks,” says Tim Cerny, the museum’s owner and car/fashion curator.
Attracting 30,000 visitors annually, the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum is the only place visitors can see a Compound, an Argonne, an Argo Limousine, a Columbia Mark XIX or a McFarlan Type 125—all of which are the last of their kind in the world. The museum’s collection of 100 pristine vehicles range from horseless carriages to roadsters and racers, and some have won best in their class at premier shows around the country. There’s also a detailed write-up on each of the cars and the technology behind their construction and design.
The museum is, however, much more than a place that showcases old cars. It also displays an assortment of antique bicycles and vintage clothing dating back to the 1740s. Boasting 1,000 clothing items, it houses the largest collection of vintage apparel in the Northwest and provides a stunning illustration of fashion design stories. Like the cars, the elegant outfits are rotated periodically throughout the building. “It’s part of keeping the museum fresh and interesting,” says Museum Manager Willy Vinton.
The Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum is also a repository for Alaska’s unique motoring history. Large scale photos accent the walls surrounding the cars and clothing, along with write-ups of the historical significance of the photo and locations around Alaska. The museum also offers a book about transportation in Alaska, informative videos running on TV screens, and an outdoor display of unrestored items that depict the story of Alaska. “It’s not just for car lovers,” Cerny says. “This is a museum for everyone.”
Guests of Wedgewood Resort can enjoy convenient access to all the museum has to offer, plus the amenities of Fairbanks’ largest hotel. The expansive facility has much to see, fabulous food, and plenty of space for people to wander around or gather in groups. This makes the resort and museum a unique meeting venue. “We get rave reviews when people come for events,” Vinton says. “There’s nothing else in the state that compares to it at all.”
Currently, the museum is working on expanding its story on the horsepower wars of the 1930s. It’s also enhancing an outdoor display designed to give people a better feel of what it’s like to walk through an old mining site. “Every time you come into the museum, you will see something new and different,” Cerny says.
The Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum is a must-see attraction for anyone visiting Fairbanks. Cerny says: “We are a world-class museum in a relatively remote location. You have to come see it to believe it.”
