History AND motors go hand in hand at the Museum of Alaska Transportation and Industry, where you can uncover stories of the people and machines that opened up the state to exploration and growth.
From locomotives, to automotives, to planes and agricultural machinery, there is a host of fun artifacts and exhibits to explore at the state's rich and fascinating industry.
Did you know that Alaska was formed in a series of booms and busts? It's an interesting history, because whilst the state was rich in natural resources (and that brings a desire to exploit it), there is a need for technology and transportation for this to happen - but that has limited the development - leading to busts and booms!
And with a visit to the Museum of Alaska Transportation and Industry, YOU can explore this further!
And yes, you actually get to see real life trains, and cars, and planes, and even some vehicles you might not think of when it comes to transportation.
With fun events throughout the year as well, it's time to DRIVE into your next family day out in the great state of Alaska, and learn all about how Alaska became the state you know and love today!
