Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum




The Alaska Aviation Museum is located in the heart of Alaska aviation. It sits on the south shore of Lake Hood, the busiest seaplane base in the world, with more than 87,000 takeoffs and landings per year. A half-mile away is Ted Stevens International Airport, the air crossroads of the world. You can watch takeoffs and landings right from the museum. The museum presents one of the finest displays of Alaskan aviation history with many interactive displays, memorabilia, photographs, films and artifacts from personal collections of Alaska’s pioneer aviators. Since opening to the public in 1988, the Museum has continued to collect aircraft from all eras of Alaska aviation, from the 1928 Stearman c2b to the 1981 Boeing B737-29OC. Rent the entire museum for a unique wedding festivity with gorgeous planes hanging above you as you enjoy first class dining. Experience the colorful history of aviation at this original museum.
