The $3.00 fee was worth it. There are many artifacts and photos on the town history. There is also a room dedicated to the mountain climbing experiences.

The folks in Talkeetna have done a superb job of putting together a wealth of information that can be seen in a short time - or you can talk time to explore their archives which cover the rich history of this quaint town and the large mountain that looms in the distance.

Best value in Alaska. Museum gives excellent story of the area. Ranger stood in front of 3D map of Mt McKinley. We became a group of hikers as he talked through prep. He had been up the mountain.

A well done view into the local history with artifacts I can identify with. The guide was well informed. We were glad we stopped.

Be sure to go here...especially at 1:00 pm for the US Park Service Ranger talk on Mt. Denali. The Museum consists of multiple buildings & has many different & interesting exhibits about this area.

This museum was comprised of 3 historical buildings. It was absolutely chock full of artifacts. The most interesting to me was the one containing stories of various climbers. Well worth the donation to see.

While this museum is small, and off the beaten path, we were pleasantly surprised at the wealth of history there. The man said he would answer any questions we might have. The mock up of Denali took a lot of time to create.

A short (30-40min) diversion rich with the variety of detail that made up Talkeetnas early life. $3 to enter. If you are interested in learning a bit about this fun town, this is a worthwhile place to visit.

Not large but very interesting if not from or knowledgeable about Alaska. Such a fascinating place then and now. Worth the visit plus if you are in Talkeetna, there is not mush to do.
