The Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum showcases three remarkable collections under one roof: classic cars, vintage fashion and Alaska transportation history. Visitors can explore how American automobile design and clothing styles evolved dramatically from the late Victorian Age through the Roaring 20s and Art Deco eras. Over 60 rare vehicles are on display, including horseless carriages, steam automobiles, electric cars, speedsters, cyclecars, midget racers and 30s classics. Historic flapper dresses, opera gowns, tuxedos, tea dresses, everyday clothes and 1700s formals are exhibited throughout the galleries. The museum also vividly portrays Alaska’s zany automotive history through vintage photographs, exhibit panels and archival movies. Several original Alaska vehicles are on display, including the Territory’s very first car (built in 1905 by a man who had never seen a car before!).
