Cute museum detailing how and when Iditarod came to town. Three dollar donation. Has a small store and other buildings that were relocated across the street from museum. Old one room school house, the post office, etc.

There are so many interesting stories about the folk that built up early Alaska from miners, to mushers, to builders, to creative minds. I find it amazing how some folk made of go of life in Alaksa when surrounded by nothing but wilderness. This little museum, dedicated to Dorothy Page, who is considered the Mother of the Iditarod is well... More

Charming little place in the middle of town. The basement wasn't open when we visited so the entrance fee for the entire museum was waived. It had an interesting collection of artifacts and literature on early Alaskan settler life and Native Alaskan stuff. They even put on a video about the Iditarod race for us (we sat and watched that... More

This is a tiny museum with some great exhibits. A quick way to get some local history and perspective on this great state. The downstairs exhibit on mining was very good. There is a collection of historic buildings across the parking lot. The docents in the museum helped us find some other attractions in the area, as well.

This museum is such a treasure! We enjoyed milling around for a couple of hours learning about the history of the area & admiring the collections from the past. The mural leading to the downstairs area was GREAT! And the buildings outside were interesting.

This is an old time Alaskan museum filled with history about Wasilla and the Mat Valley. The museum has a display of old town buildings that were moved to the site over the years to preserve them. The museum it's self is located in one of the old logs cabins (house) from the early days and asks for a $2.00... More

I brought a 97 year old gentleman to this place. He completely enjoyed it. The only downfall for him was all the walking up and down the sloped walkway. We were very limited to the area that he could explore. Inside the store area there was free coffee for him to enjoy and sit down and rest. It is beautiful... More

It was a nice place to stop and learn about local history. The snowflake exhibit was interesting as well. The two men at the desk recommended several things for us to do in town. We drove up to Wasilla not really having a plan, after leaving the museum we had a full list of things to do. The best day... More
