Located in Pioneer Park in Fairbanks, this small attraction is loaded with interesting info regarding Alaska's reliance on air travel, as well as some war history. I enjoyed my visit. Only a very small entrance fee.

This is an amazing museum that deserves a bigger facility with better advertising. For the aviation buff like myself this place is close to heaven. The number of aircraft is kind of limited when compared to the Naval Aviation Museum or NASM in DC but considering this museum is really dedicated more to bush flying than anything else it is a supreme collection of gorgeous, historical aircraft. Many of the aircraft, like the Norduyn Norseman, Piper Cub etc were mainstays of Alaska's bush flying days. There are great exhibits detailing local airlines, the Wiley Post-Will Rogers crash and etc. This museum was one of the highlights of my short time in Fairbanks.

This is an excellent collection of historic flying machines, which are Alaskan treasures. You are up close and personal. If you have questions, just ask. This must be rated as excellent, as there is more to this than first meets the eye. A bit of study and you realize the history here.

Enjoyed the many historic displays, although some areas were cluttered and signage was lacking or in the wrong locations.

Great place for aviation lovers and other visitors to Alaska! This is housed in a round building inside Pioneer Park, also called "Alaskaland" by some locals.
