  • The Merrill Field Tower Cab is a great place for wine tasting or party and to view Lake Hood aviation operations. The hangars are full of history and historic aircraft. This museum is always changing exhibits and rebuilding aircraft to fly, not just to replicate. Not only are the aircraft historic one of the hangars is on the National Registry as the first hangar at Lake Hood the largest Seaplane base in world.
  • I'm really surprised at the level of interest that this museum possesses. You can see everything from Helicopters to airplane engines. Virtually everything aerospace is contained in this facility. This facility has a lot to offer the aerospace enthusiast. I recommend checking it out!!!!
  • This is a pretty small museum but it's a very nice one for those those that are interested. Try the simulator (the paid one)!
  • Great Museum! Nice little gift shop.
  • A great museum telling the history of flying in Alaska. So much information! Stories varying from the first flight to the Japanese invasion during WWII to the formation of Alaskan Airlines - great stuff!!
