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.

From cars, trains, tractors and more you'll find it here. It's got an awesome museum and gift shop too.

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 )

This attraction was ok for maybe someone that appreciates trains. My kids were a little younger at the time. Easily bored. Not a whole lot there.

My husband enjoyed this museum and was impressed with all of there things. Planes, Trains, Automobiles, snow machines and lots of great history that would be lost without this great museum. It was easy to find and worth the visit. Will visit it again because they have lots of room to grow. They were very friendly and knowledgeable regarding the... More

This place is out past Wassilla and worth the trip. They've got trains cars you can go into, antiqued snow mobiles, an old coast guard tower, alot of vehicles and some artifacts. I went when it was rain'n and it really added to the atmospher.

We were visiting our son and daughter-in-law who have recently moved to Alaska or we would not have known about this very interesting museum. There were so many antique modes of transportation from boats to trains to planes to helicopters and also many antique tools -- there was even a covered wagon. It was a great step-back in history.
