Nice, quiet museum. Lots of outdoor history - airplanes, a train, a few automobiles., and tractors. Even an old air traffic control tower. A quiet setting and a few picnic tables. Bring some snacks and let the kids explore .

Took some visitors from Down Under to this museum and they loved it! So did I! A lot of care was taken to preserve early forms of transport in Alaska -- whether by air, road,water or rail. The staff of volunteers, whose love for the museum is evident in all their dealings with visitors, was most welcoming.

I enjoyed the conversation and bits of extra knowledge he was able to pass on . The Museum itself is small yet grand so much is out doors and you do get the feel for it . I do wish could do some restoration on these mechanized behemoths. My personal favorite is the Hupmobile

We made the time to visit the museum while driving from one point to another and were glad we did. Spent about an hour. It was a great place to walk around - lots of boats, cars, planes, trains. If you enjoy this sort of thing, it's well worth the few dollars to go. We enjoyed a picnic lunch on... More

If you are in Wasilla you should stop by. It's got planes, trains and automobiles. Plus a whole lot more. My husband and I had a wonderful time going through the Alaskan Railroad cars and looking at the old pictures. It's a much needed reminder about what it took to build the infastructure if this county. The photos show how... More

It is a Transportation museum...it may not interest everyone but I found it fascinating. My only wish is that it were bigger and all the outdoor machines could be protected from the elements by being inside. They also have a great antique chainsaw collection. Overall, a really interesting and informative visit!

We were really excited to go here, and drove there only to see a "closed for winter" sign on the front chain! PLEASE update this site so that everyone knows this is a seasonal museum!! Looks very interesting though, i really wish it would have been open!

These old cars and equipment are interesting to both my teen grandson and 7 year old granddaughter. A bargain for all afternoon activity. There is an indoor display as well. Nothing flashy or touristy, way cool.
