This is a must-do in Talkeetna. The museum is excellent, and Sue and her co-workers do a fine job in explaining the history of the area. The highlight was the afternoon presentation from the US Park Ranger's presentation about Mount McKinley and those who climb it. Fascinating, and not to be missed.

You can't beat the $3 admission which then gives you parking for the whole day in town. The speaker from the Forest Service about climbing Mt. McKinley was AWESOME! He had a great way of telling a story! I could listen to him all day. Lots of amazing artifacts.

This is a great little museum, and high value because the cost is only about $4. The old mountaineering stuff is worth a visit. It can take as little as 30', or as long as an hour or so depending how much you read. I would even go again...

The museum is a wonderful place to get a feel for the settling of Talkeetna and the individuals who came to call it home. When visiting an area, it is always a great idea to visit the local museum. It gives a picture of not only the surrounding land and peoples who live there, but a better understanding of why it means so much to those call it home. The railroad is such an important part of Talkeetna and the residents of surrounding areas too, transporting people, fuel, food, and the like into the interior remote areas.
