"Fountainhead" Antique Automobile Museum

"Fountainhead" Antique Automobile Museum Review

Located on the property of the Wedgewood Resort, this museum features automobiles from 1898 to 1938—all of which run, the curators taking them out on the roads regularly. The museum also has 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 are displays of vintage clothing and historical photographs. Widely considered one of the best auto museums in the world, and incredibly interesting, even if you're not interested in old cars.
