We spent a couple of hours leisurely viewing the exhibits and watching a portion of the PBS video on the motivation for and construction of the Alaska Highway. The exhibits are well done and this is time well spent, especially if you're starting a trip to Alaska via the Alaska Highway.

Great little museum for anyone interested in the Alaska Highway. The difficulties of building this road were huge, and the men who overcame those difficulties should be remembered and recognized. I would recommend this museum to everyone starting up the Alcan from Dawson Creek.

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.

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, 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
