I love this museum - no charge to get in, although donations always welcome to help support the museum and its many programs. There are scavenger hunt cards for the kids, lots of Native Alaskan Clothing & carvings, well done taxidermy, fossils and more - something for everyone!

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
