  • Very comprehensive collection of automobiles from the very early days to the 1970s. Almost all are in working condition which is impressive. Some vehicles are unique to Alaska in order to cope with the harsh winter/snow conditions here. The museum is very well laid out in a chronological order with detailed descriptions and explanations of the evolution of different technology that comprised of the cars. We walked away with a renewed appreciation of the all the developments that led to the modern automobile.
  • I just never knew that this place existed. I am so glad to have stopped by to check it out. If you love old cars, and clothing, this place will blow your mind. Go check it out. What an experience. Awesome. Even if old cars are "not your thing", they will be after your stop to visit the Foundationhead Antique Auto Museum. So cool.
