Chena Hot Springs

This is the second visit to the Ice House for the two RV Gypsies. They returned here to allow their family the chance to enjoy a new but very COLD experience. Be sure you have visited the original photos because more history and more extensive photos and information about the House House are posted there.
AURORA ICE MUSEUM & HOTEL
Chena Hot Springs Resort is home to the world's largest year-round ice museum in the world, the Aurora Ice Museum! It was completed in January 2005 and stays a cool 20 degrees Fahrenheit inside year round. 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!

The Aurora Ice Museum gallery features amazing ice sculptures created by 13 time world champion ice carver Steve Brice and with his wife, Heather. They are also 4 time champions as a husband and wife team. Within the museum, they have created a two story observation tower with a circular staircase, but visitors cannot go upstairs.

Ever-changing colored ice crystal chandeliers which mimic the Northern Lights. There were 5 chandeliers each with 70 hand-carved ice crystals that changed colors every 10 seconds. Fiber optic lighting was used to create this feature. All other lighting was LED based which transmits no heat.
