Review for Valdez Museum And Historical Archive Association Incorporated, Valdez, AK, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

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.

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

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

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Donor & I donated objects and documents relating to my Grandfather's business days in Valdez during the late 1800's to early 1900's.
