The Alaska Aviation Museum (AAM) first opened in 1988, as our goal to preserve Alaska’s incredible aviation heritage. The museum is located on Lake Hood Seaplane base, the busiest Seaplane base in the world. AAM’s location and impressive collection of historical aircraft and artifacts, help to maintain Alaska’s superb flight tradition. This heritage thrives, as a result of our generous patrons and AAM’s mission statement: “To preserve, display, and honor Alaska's aviation heritage, by preserving and displaying historic aircraft, artifacts, and memorabilia, and to foster public interest in aviation and its history." The Alaska Aviation Museum caters to a great diversity of clients. Annual admission numbers typically reach 12,000 visitors. AAM's facilities include indoor and outdoor exhibits featuring vintage aircraft, ongoing restorative projects, virtual reality flight simulators, and memorable event space options. AAM also supports meaningful volunteer opportunities and a multitude of educational and interactive programs for all ages. These services are offered within the Anchorage area. However, our organization routinely allies with other organizations outside of Anchorage, including rural communities, to facilitate community outreach, education, and strong partnerships.
