Anchorage seems to have a bucket list of attractions – it does them simply but it does them well. This one’s got 30 aircraft among other exhibits and memorabilia to showcase Alaska’s aviation legacy. History seems to ooze out of these restored crafts in all its gravitas, and there are birds here dating right from WWII. The oldest is from 1928, a Stearman C2B. Interactive displays will engage your kids.
Right next to is the Lake Hood, the busiest sea plane port in the world, with over 87000 take-offs and landings annually. As a bonus, your admission ticket gives you access to the new Flight Tower too! You can go up and actually listen to the air traffic controllers bringing the light planes in.
Now, the hangar’s got a lot of space that no one’s using, so they museum’s happy to let you use it to host your special events. Heck, you can even rent out a snazzy inside of a jet for a meeting.

Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum Reviews & Ratings
Great place and a must-see for aviation enthusiasts. Museum not only displays various aircraft but also covers the impact the aircraft had on the development of Alaska. You can easily spend an hour (when the sun is out) sitting on the terrace of the old tower and watch sea planes taking off. Friendliness of the staff really made my day, thanks!
What an awesome place. Talked to the curator and he said there original museum burnt down and this is their new location. This museum is unique in that every plane in the museum has ties to Alaska. Either it started there, crashed there, or somehow touched Alaska, all their planes have some history with this state. If you are up here, I'd definitely recommend visiting.
A real eye opener and wonderful educational history lesson. The aviation world in Alaska is quite fascinating. The planes and jet on display, were fantastic. A very sad, dark part of history rarely discussed , was also showcased in a very good documentary.
Tower is fun place to watch float planes take off, you can listen to air traffic control. Museum does a good job telling the story of Japanese invasion and bombing of US during WW II. Yes, Japan did invade US soil, they landed and held two Aleutian islands.
Went to the AHBA parade of homes banquet here what an amazing place to see with very friendly staff and lots of information😁
