    What to Expect
    Visit: Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum, 212 Wedgewood Dr Wedgewood Resort, Fairbanks, AK 99701-1728

    Fairbanks entrepreneur Tim Cerny began collecting the museum's vehicles in 2007, carefully selecting each one for their historical significance, technological innovations, or rarity. The cars exemplify some of the most fascinating developments in U.S. automotive history prior to World War II.

    Our collection features over 95 vehicles, including horseless carriages, steamers, electric cars, speedsters, cyclecars, midget racers and 30s classics.  These include such rarities as an 1898 Hay Motor Vehicle, 1906 Compound, 1920 Argonne and 1921 Heine-Velox Victoria. 

    During your visit you will also discover the largest vintage fashion collection on display in the Pacific Northwest. The collection offers an array of silhouettes in both men's and women's fashions, from silk bustle dresses and motoring dusters to shimmering flapper shifts and dapper tuxedos.  Antique accessories including historic hats, shoes, jewelry, and more complete the scores of vintage elegance. Several new garments and exhibits are rotated onto display, making a fresh gem from our collection available to experience each season.

    Fantastic display of early American cars from the earliest prototypes to the 30's luxury with a fine collection of ladies fashions to suit the vehicle age (and keep the wife sort of happy). Only let down was the slightly intrusive preparations for a private function...More

    The most amazing collection of automobiles that helped build Alaska. Over 80 on the showroom floor. They all run and most were magnificently restored along with descriptions and period correct clothes. A private collection worthy of a visit!
