“Gear heads will love”
Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

My husband enjoyed this museum and was impressed with all of there things. Planes, Trains, Automobiles, snow machines and lots of great history that would be lost without this great museum. It was easy to find and worth the visit. Will visit it again because they have lots of room to grow. They were very friendly and knowledgeable regarding the museum. It was great to go through the train.

“Timeless”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

This place is out past Wassilla and worth the trip. They've got trains cars you can go into, antiqued snow mobiles, an old coast guard tower, alot of vehicles and some artifacts. I went when it was rain'n and it really added to the atmospher.

“Alaska Museum of Transportation, Wasilla, Alaska”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We were visiting our son and daughter-in-law who have recently moved to Alaska or we would not have known about this very interesting museum. There were so many antique modes of transportation from boats to trains to planes to helicopters and also many antique tools -- there was even a covered wagon. It was a great step-back in history. The children loved climbing on the trains and in the old cars and firetrucks. The museum is very well done and very clean. The day we went was a cold, misty summer day but we still enjoyed every minute--especially the men and the boys! I would definitely recommend this museum for anyone interested in seeing the "real" antiques. There is also a nice picnic park on the grounds.

“Traveling the Alaskan Past”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

A good look at the "real" things that have made Alaska what it is today. From vintage airplanes that flew the skies duringWorld War II to god dredges, and steam locomotives, this is the place to stop. Easy access from the Parks Highway just north of Wasilla.

“Amazing Array of Items on Display”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We spent a good couple of hours here and wouldn't have known about had not a friend from home suggested we call in if we had time. A gobsmacking variety of machinery & equipment on display showcasing the history of Alaskan development. Everything from chainsaws & outboard motors to full size aircraft & trains. For anyone interested in the Bush Pilots there is a whole section dedicated to the history of aviation in Alaska along with a railroad section inside one of the railcars. A very interesting attraction that deserves to be promoted to visitors more.
