We enjoyed walking through the museum and seeing the old stuff. But, what we really enjoyed there was the ranger led talk on climbing Denali. It was very informative.

This is a simple but very well done museum with lots of authentic artifacts depicting the various eras of the growth of the town and the conquering of Denali. Large scale model of Denali with lots of explanation. Nice little gift shop also.
