I had a little time before my flight so I visited the Museum to check it out. If you follow or want to learn about the early Alaska flyers they have tons of information. Some early planes and a shop where they are working on restoring some more planes. I enjoyed my visit and came away with a greater appreciation... More

Very interesting - especially for aviation buffs. You can walk right up to every plane - well presented for such a big collection in a compact location. Worth the entrance fee!

The people that work here are very friendly and helpful. My husband enjoyed photographing the old planes. I enjoyed watching an old video of a hot air balloon crossing Denali. The basket to the hot air balloon is in the museum. My favorite part though was sitting in a little tower that looks like air traffic control, but it's just... More

It was an interesting tour. I don't think I would have enjoyed it as much if we had not had a lecture about Alaskan Aviation on our cruise ship. The shore excursion did not leave one enough time to reach all the information presented at the museum.

I feel this museum is so underrated and looked over. Located by Lake Hood, this museum has so much to offer anyone interested in aviation in Alaska, including military history. The place is full of old planes of all kinds, including an Alaska Airlines jet outside. Information about many of Alaska's aviation pioneers, bush pilots, the men who began some... More

Interesting Aviation museum right on the lake with constant float plane activity. Many old aircraft, some still undergoing restoration. A former control tower with the live audio from the nearby general aviation control tower.

We had several hours of time after we checked out and saved the trip to this museum until our final day in Alaska. We checked out luggage at a special place in the airport as the ticket counter was not open until 2 hours before the flight. You can take an airport shuttle to the museum. We did not know... More
