This is an interesting place to visit and only takes an hour. It's interesting because of all the artifacts collected around remote Alaska back in the years before mass tourism and when it was still possible to acquire them. The beautifully mounted collection of Alaskan animals is worth seeing.

This is a grest place if you would like to see lots of stuffed animals from Alaska. Kids really like this museum because of the big animals. There are lots of native items to see that has been collected across the state. The museum just requests a donation for entry. A must see while visiting Valdez
