The Museum is hands on, you can climb on trains or just look if you want. explore at your leisure. they have so many things to look at you could spend hours

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.

We didnt plan on stopping here on our trip to alaska, even though i had seen it on trip advisor, but on our drive from seward all the way to denali, we needed a brake, we saw it from the road and decided to go in, right before closing. the attendant was very nice, gave us a family rate instead...

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...

First off, it's seasonal and it's closed in winter. I was driving by and followed the signs on the highway to get there and was a bit surprised to see a locked gate (but it's only a few mins off the main highway, so not a big deal). So plan you visit :) But since most of the exposition is... More

If you are in Wasilla it is certainly worth your time to stop by the Alaska Museum of Transportation. They have a wide variety of vehicles, planes, and trains on site. Sadly most of them are outside and uncovered so they are not in musuem condition. However, their collection is still worth checking out.

Most of the exhibits are outdoors ... interesting exhibits on the history of Alaska (although my husband, an engineer, found them more interesting than I did :D )
