What You Can Expect

Bouchard's International Dog Mushing and Sled Museum

One of a kind collection

The Bouchard's International Dog Mushing and Sled Museum is a one-of-a-kind experience located in downtown Fairbanks. Dog sleds were the only reliable way of travel in the early days for people living in the Arctic. You’ll learn how the practice developed into the popular race known as the Iditarod.
 
The many dog sleds in the museum include a vintage model from Greenland. Check out the trophies, pictures, and memorabilia from mushers including Lance Mackey, Susan Butcher, George Alta and native Alaskans.
 
Compare the original sleds with the modern dog sled, used on the Iditarod trail today. The exhibits provide a portrait of the rigorous challenges that mushers face upon entering the Iditarod.
 
On the second floor, extensive art displays showcase ivory sculptures and native art work. Wrap up your visit with an 18-minute video of a musher’s journey in the Yukon Quest, a 1,000-mile (1,609 km) race that begins in Fairbanks and finishes in Whitehorse, Canada.
