This was not on my original list of places to check out in Talkeetna, but a couple people recommended it, and we had time to kill, so we went to check it out. $3 admission fee, and we thought it was fascinating! The main building is about Talkeetna, and its history, along with many artifacts, newspapers, and a mock-up sourdough... More

Really nice people work there but its just a nothing little museum. Its $3 to go through it and worth supporting the idea of it but dont expect much at all.

I really liked the town. It's really nice and was enjoyable. The historical society itself was small and there was not a lot to it. They do have a lot of books to buy. But I really didn't think it was even worth the 3 bucks to get it.

Stumbled to this small town, after speaking to Alaskan railroad, which stops in this town for several hours. The museum is a short walk from the train depot (if this is how you come into Talkeetna), small museum which also is called Little Red Schoolhouse, once operated as a school ending in 1971, museum took over 1974, full of cultural...

Enjoyed learning some of the local history. Employee was very informative and told us many interesting facts and tips of other things to see in town. Small admission price worth it

A nice little museum in town, with an overview of the area history, some highlights of nearby Denali, etc. Worth the few dollars to get in and tour the three buildings

We had been tipped by a guide up at Denali National Park to visit the museum early in our Talkeetna stay and it was good advice. For a small museum in a tiny town, it has so much information about the town, the earlier ways of living there, and about climbing Denali. We knew little about mountain climbing before visiting,...
