Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum

Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum

Visitors are able to inspect and observe a number of aircraft, including one of the four 1924 Douglas World Cruiser "Seattle" planes to attempt the first circumnavigation of the globe. While two of the aircraft on that historic journey completed their goal, this plane crashed in Alaska. The wreckage was later retrieved, and it is now on display, alongside various other planes from all throughout the 20th century, at the museum.

We hope you enjoy our work.
