If you are in Wasilla you should stop by. It's got planes, trains and automobiles. Plus a whole lot more. My husband and I had a wonderful time going through the Alaskan Railroad cars and looking at the old pictures. It's a much needed reminder about what it took to build the infastructure if this county. The photos show how... More

It is a Transportation museum...it may not interest everyone but I found it fascinating. My only wish is that it were bigger and all the outdoor machines could be protected from the elements by being inside. They also have a great antique chainsaw collection. Overall, a really interesting and informative visit!

We were really excited to go here, and drove there only to see a "closed for winter" sign on the front chain! PLEASE update this site so that everyone knows this is a seasonal museum!! Looks very interesting though, i really wish it would have been open!

Kids had fun but they wanted to ride and climb on equipment. Don't go on a rainy day.. A lot of stuff is outside. A more prominent path would be helpful, kinda felt like we were just wondering around and dint know where to go.

Not much to see, but interesting nonetheless. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it but if I were traveling North on the parks and were sightseeing, I would probably stop by if I had never been there before.

There's a vast number of vehicles to see at this museum. It's self-guided. It's not the kind of museum where there's a lot of media or technology (videos, interactive, etc). But it's fun walking around the grounds, so much to see.

This little museum can keep you captivated for hours. Inside are early snowmobiles and the survival story of two people stranded in winter wilderness when their airplane crashed, among many other exhibits. Outside you will find Alaska Railroad train cars, and other wonders that should be restored and indoors, if only funding was available. Thankfully, concerned citizens saved these priceless... More

It's like a boneyard for what was working history when I was young. I can remember looking out at the museum pieces and remembering when that was new. The museum has a bit of everything, new to old. You see see how each piece of equipment was used and kept in use, as such items were both a necessity and... More
