It's like a boneyard for what was working history when I was young. I can remember looking out at the museum pieces and remembering when that was new. The museum has a bit of everything, new to old. You see see how each piece of equipment was used and kept in use, as such items were both a necessity and... More

The museum has some interesting pieces (I liked the old time snowmobile) but the outside is a photographer's playground. There are just rows of old cars, trucks, boats, planes, trains...my husband and I spent 1.5 hrs roaming around just outside, taking great pictures. I wouldn't say this is for young children, there are a lot of rusted old relics and... More

OK this is not your normal Museum. Its more like a grave yard of very old junk. However if your a history buff and like old junk then your in luck. When we were visiting they had just started tearing up the road to install paved paths. A little hard to get around but since the weather was good we... More

We were bummed too find out that this museum is closed for the winter. Husband was looking forward to visiting. Check their website or call to make sure they are open before you drive there.

Great place to spend the day checking everything out. From antique an Alaska state trooper vehicle to fire apparatus, to railroad items, to vintage snowmachines this place has it all and more. I come here about twice a year and always find something I've missed before.

I was looking for a place to interview in the Meadow Lakes area and found MATI. I'm not sure if I'm just surprised there's a museum out there or how very interesting the history displayed there! A gem for sure! As you drive in you'll see railroad trains facing you, #1000 and #1500 and coming from a railroad family, that's... More

This museum is a collection of antiques, old trains, old planes and historical information on Alaska. I wouldn't recommend it for young kids, but for older folks it was interesting. Good for the price.

My husband and I went here and thought we'd spend an easy 30 minutes or so. Wow, were we wrong! It was several hours later that we left. An amazing collection and assortment of fabulous historical artifacts are on display -- from the automobile, to motors, to boats, early aviation, a little clothing, telephone and telecommunications, everything transportation is outside...
