These old cars and equipment are interesting to both my teen grandson and 7 year old granddaughter. A bargain for all afternoon activity. There is an indoor display as well. Nothing flashy or touristy, way cool.

Kids had fun but they wanted to ride and climb on equipment. Don't go on a rainy day.. A lot of stuff is outside. A more prominent path would be helpful, kinda felt like we were just wondering around and dint know where to go.

Not much to see, but interesting nonetheless. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it but if I were traveling North on the parks and were sightseeing, I would probably stop by if I had never been there before.

There's a vast number of vehicles to see at this museum. It's self-guided. It's not the kind of museum where there's a lot of media or technology (videos, interactive, etc). But it's fun walking around the grounds, so much to see.

This little museum can keep you captivated for hours. Inside are early snowmobiles and the survival story of two people stranded in winter wilderness when their airplane crashed, among many other exhibits. Outside you will find Alaska Railroad train cars, and other wonders that should be restored and indoors, if only funding was available. Thankfully, concerned citizens saved these priceless... More

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.
