Automobiles from 1898 to 1938 gleam on display at this world-class attraction at the Wedgewood Resort. Obscure makes—Buckmobiles, Packards, and Hudsons among them—compete for attention with more familiar specimens from Ford, Cadillac, and Chrysler. The museum's holdings include the first car ever made in Alaska, built in Skagway out of sheet metal and old boat parts, all to impress a girl (didn't work). Alongside the cars, all but three of them in running condition,
are historical photographs and exhibits of vintage clothing that illustrate the evolution of style, especially for women. Among the world's finest auto museums, Fountainhead provides a fascinating survey of history, design, culture, and, of course, cars. Museum manager Willy Vinton handpicks the cars himself. He'll gladly give you a private guided tour ($28), or you can take the free audio one.
