Valdez is a small town (4,500 pop) with an exceptionally large foot in the history of the West. The Museum has a modern archives in a warehouse full of historic memorabilia, as well as a downtown location that mounts special exhibits covering the Gold Rush, the 1964 earthquake that destroyed old Valdez, and the conflict and heartbreak surrounding the Exxon oil spill. The Warehouse is a do not miss for all ages.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Exhibits of old Valdez life especially during the Gold Rush

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very personable and helpful and dedicated to teaching the multiple stories of Valdez.
