This is a must see while visiting Wasilla. Many period items to see as well as specialty exhibits. Several out buildings to get a glimpse of the past. A school house and post office. They have a local story teller that speaks from the heart.

Combine this with a visit to the Iditarod museum also in Wasilla and you get a real sense of life here. The murals going down to the mining exhibit are noteworthy also.

Staff very friendly but lots of items didn't have explanations of what they were. Hopefully the quality will go up when they are moved. Boxes all over the place so couldn't see some displays. Great explanation of the Iditarod.
