History museums' acquisitions always instill wonder in children who have become bored with their own closet full of skeletons. Discover a body of knowledge with today's Groupon: for $10, you get admission for two plus flight-simulator use at the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum, located near Lake Hood (up to a $20 value).

Spread across five hangars, the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum honors Alaska's pioneering spirit with an assemblage of edifying aircraft. Learn levitation-related lore via the art gallery, three minitheaters, and more than 20 vintage aircraft, including the raffish yet pug-nosed 1944 Stinson AT-19 Reliant, a Boeing helicopter, and one of six 1928 Fairchilds still in existence. After perusing these painstakingly up-kept cloudboats, take to the digital skies via a fully functional flight simulator, which features mockup soaring experiences of several planes from the museum's fleet. Although the sky-centric exhibits help foster a culture of apathy for ignoble, gravity-adhering cars, visitors can still take advantage of free shuttle service to and from Anchorage International Airport. Check the museum's website for information on their seasonal hours.

Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum

The Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum takes visitors on a flyby of the the state's aeronautical history. The vast facility—composed of five hangars of planes and exhibits, a restoration hangar, and three theaters—covers aviation history from the early days of flight to modern military aviation. More than 20 vintage aircraft can be found throughout, including a 1931 Fairchild Pilgrim 100B, a 1943 Grumman G44 Widgeon, and a 1981 Boeing B737-290C. Meanwhile, the museum's spot on the south shore of Lake Hood—the busiest seaplane base in the world—gives visitors a glimpse of modern planes in action.

Alaska aviation history comes alive at this museum! Come face-to-face with planes, engines, a flight deck simulation and more! Friendly, informative service at the welcoming desk for a fun, interactive museum. Allot a good 4-5 hours to tour.
