  • 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. You can easily spend an hour (when the sun is out) sitting on the terrace of the old tower and watch sea planes taking off. Friendliness of the staff really made my day, thanks!
  • 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.
