Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum
Located in Anchorage, Alaska on the south shore of Lake Hood, the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum details the history of Alaskan aviation. This is a more interesting subject than one might initially think it would be. In the early part of the 20th century, the only practical way to get to certain parts of Alaska was (and still is) by airplane. If you're an aviation buff, this is a must-see.
