Compact 'museum' that Presents Alaska highway history very well; Video documentary shown on premises is quite interesting with many surprising facts; displays well done. Very well done and leaves you feeling like you've learned something. Friendly, welcoming, informative staff.

Thank you for your review and comments, underway1976! It is truly an engineering feat! Over 1500 miles in 8 months in frigid and extreme conditions. We are glad you had a great time at the Alaska Highway House! More

Walked through the museum and watched some of the video. Was a good start to our day. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Offered us our pins as I had forgotten to ask for them.

Thank you for your review and comments, bpprid! I am so glad the summer staff were friendly and helpful! Our goal is for every visitor to receive a 'Mile 0 Post Pin' and (if comfortable) to get their photo on the actual Mile 0 Post! More

You can watch the PBS documentary here about the construction of the Alaska Highway, then see artifacts and stories that make it come alive. Worth a visit!

Thank you for your review and comments, Anne-Marie N. The PBS Documentary 'American Experience: Building the Alaska Highway' is an incredible documentary that truly showcases the vast scope of building the 1500 mile highway in 1942. We love to share the stories of soldiers and civilians with visitors. More

Gives a good picture of the building of the Alaska Highway. An interactive presentation. The staff is friendly, there is a small charge.

This is a definite must-see if you want to learn about the building of the highway and get a kick-start to the Alaska Highway. The video is very good - but long and the chairs aren't very comfortable, but it is worth it. The museum element takes time to enjoy so 30 minutes is good. Unfortunately the 'send a postcard'...
