Alaska Aviation Museum

Visit Website

One of the top 5 attractions in Anchorage, the Alaska Aviation Museum is special. Each aircraft and artifact holds a fascinating, relevant, meaningful Alaska history back story. As a state with few transportation options over vast territory, aviation developed a rich and textured legacy. The Alaska Aviation Museum is located on the world’s busiest seaplane base, Lake Hood, at Anchorage International Airport. Open daily 9am-5pm during the summer, it’s a substantial museum boasting 4 hangars of exhibits and vintage aircraft (over 25 vintage aircraft in flying condition on display). (Follow website or Facebook for winter hours.) Outdoor exhibits; Restoration hangar (watch volunteers at work restoring vintage aircraft); Control tower (watch seaplanes land and take off, including live real-time radio tower feed); Flight simulators, including full-immersion virtual reality; World class gift store. Allow 1½ to 2 hours for a visit. Admission only $17 for adults, $14 for military, veterans and seniors age 65 and older, and $10 for ages 5-17. For a family, we have a special rate of $45 which admits 2 adults and up to 3 kids. Guided tours can be arranged in advance at
