The museum it's self is located in one of the old logs cabins (house) from the early days and asks for a $2.00... More

I brought a 97 year old gentleman to this place. He completely enjoyed it. The only downfall for him was all the walking up and down the sloped walkway. We were very limited to the area that he could explore. Inside the store area there was free coffee for him to enjoy and sit down and rest. It is beautiful... More

It was a nice place to stop and learn about local history. The snowflake exhibit was interesting as well. The two men at the desk recommended several things for us to do in town. We drove up to Wasilla not really having a plan, after leaving the museum we had a full list of things to do. The best day... More

Dorothy Page is a great home town museum FREE to Borough residents every Friday. Volunteer docents made our class field trip terrific! The artifacts from colony days and the simulated mine shaft were the biggest hits. Another time, original Charles Schultz cartoon sketches were traveling through! The museum hosts the annual statewide amateur photography competition, always a display worth seeing.... More

Really enjoyed my visit here. Keep in mind it is a small local museum but it has some good info on a local mine in the area and some information and exhibits on some local personalities and town history. There are six period buildings across the street but you can only walk into one of them, hopefully they will get... More
