First off, it's seasonal and it's closed in winter. I was driving by and followed the signs on the highway to get there and was a bit surprised to see a locked gate (but it's only a few mins off the main highway, so not a big deal). So plan you visit :)
But since most of the exposition is outdoors and the fence is see through, it's fairly easy to get an idea of what is inside. When I was traveling in Alaska, it looks like it's so expensive to bring any heavy stuff there and it's also hard to get rid of it, and it means that Alaska is full of old machines, cars, planes, trains etc. Some times they are left where they found their last stop, some times they are being recycled (like I saw an old plane on someones property converted into something useful) and some times they are turned into tourist attractions. The problem with most of those places is the poor conditions. Since they stay outside and the Alaskan weather is harsh, they often look more like junk yards than museums - rusty metal, flat tires, peeling off paint etc.
So I guess it's close enough to the highway and cheap enough to justify a visit if you like old machines, but this is clearly a few notches off the Smithsonian grade.
