$15 entry fee (to support this non-profit museum) gets you in to see some Alaska flying history and aircraft. There's even an F-15 outdoors that you can climb around and touch. But don't miss the last hanger where volunteers are rebuilding vintage bush planes! Right now they're rebuilding Bob Reeve's old plane... very cool. The craftsmen will stop and talk... More

We took our daughter here because she loves airplanes. I even appreciate this place and how far the aviation history have come this far.

Probably enough said in the title of the review. I had this stop on my agenda before I ever left Iowa. It's well worth the admission cost. There is a bush plane museum located in Sault Ste. Marie, On. Ca. that might be better but it's still place worth visiting.

I've lived here in Anchorage for 13 years before visiting the aviation museum. I had driven by many times in the past, but one of our clients visited the museum and recommended it. You will not be disappointed. Easily spend half a day here. Lots of history, planes and memorabilia.

We have an interest in aviation and work with an aviation museum in our area. So we made sure to check out the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum. Wish we had allowed more time, but truly enjoyed the vast array of inside & outside displays. It is very well done and offers lots of insight into the history of the unique... More

Well done exhibits showing local history and aviation. The exhibits give a good understanding of the aviation history of the region, and some of the challenges they experienced, and the renovation projects they are undertaking of old airframes was quite interesting.

We were told about this place at our B&B and had no idea how interesting it would be! Lots of fascinating artifacts and exhibits about the history of flight in Alaska (including actual planes!) and a real sense of how important it remains to the state. We wished we had been able to spend lots more time here! (An added... More

When we walked in we were greeted by a gentleman that made it obvious he loved his job just from the way he talked about the place. It was neat to see all of the different planes. Our favorite part was the tower and being able to hear what was going on as we saw planes land and take off.
