AURORA ICE MUSEUM
Chena Hot Springs Resort is home to the world’s largest year-round ice environment in the world, the Aurora Ice Museum! It was created from over 1,000 tons of ice and snow, all harvested at the resort. The museum was completed in January 2005 and stays a cool 25° Fahrenheit (-7° Celsius) inside. Keeping the museum icy cold in the heat of summer comes from the patented absorption chiller, the first of its kind in the world used for this purpose! Parkas are available free of charge to use during your tour.

The Aurora Ice Museum gallery features amazing ice sculptures created by 16 time world champion ice carver Steve Brice, certified N.I.C.A (National Ice Carving Association) and his wife, Heather a 7 time world champion.
Within the museum, they have created a two story observation tower with a circular staircase, life size jousters on horse back, a polar bear bedroom, a Christmas tree bedroom, a kid's 2 story fort bedroom and a Northern Lights room with an ice outhouse made exclusively with our Alaska Diamond or Alaska Marble ice.
As you step inside the ice museum for the very first time, you notice the 25 degree temperature and are mesmerized by the ever-changing colored ice crystal chandeliers overhead depicting the Aurora Borealis.
After touring the museum, relax at the Aurora Ice Bar while awed by your surroundings. Enjoy sipping our specialty beverage an “appletini” in an ice carved martini glass for a $15 fee (ages 21+) in addition to $15 tour.
