Transportation from planes, trains, automobiles, and dog sleds! So much to see, and absolutely worth the visit. Lots of updates in the past couple of years as well!

Wow .. you certainly need to allow time to view this wonderful preservation of days gone bye. You can let your mind wander as you browse the artifacts and stimulating displays.

There was a power outage the day we visited, but we did get to see the world's largest weather vane, so I wouldn't call this a disaster for us.
