Pioneer Park Museums

While it can be argued that nearly everything at the former Alaskaland is a museum, there are generally recognized as being three distinct museums on the grounds:

There is the Pioneer Museum, the Air Museum, and the Alaska Native Village Museum (Athabascan). 

The park commission likes to call Wickersham House and the Harding Rail Car museums, too.

The Alaska Native Village Museum
This museum takes a look at Alaska through the Athabascan culture. It houses such Native artifacts as a wolverine parka and traditional tools. A mural depicts life along the river.
The Pioneer Air Museum
This museum, housed in a large gold-domed building, chronicles the development of flight in Alaska.
The Pioneer Museum
This museum offers a glimpse of Frontier Alaska. It is located in the Pioneer Hall, in Gold Rush Town. A companion display, The Big Stampede Show will give you a real feel for the hardships faced by those involved in the Gold Rush, as it takes you on a narrated tour of the Gold Rush Stampede.
