  • Great place and a must-see for aviation enthusiasts. Museum not only displays various aircraft but also covers the impact the aircraft had on the development of Alaska.

  • A real eye opener and wonderful educational history lesson. The aviation world in Alaska is quite fascinating. The planes and jet on display, were fantastic. A very sad, dark part of history rarely discussed , was also showcased in a very good documentary.
