Wow, what a collections of unique items by one couple. Its a small museum, free, right next to the college. plenty of parking. We had an RV, we parked on the street. This little museum had a life size moose, bear, and other staffed animal. worth the stop .

We stopped in to see the Polar Bear displays, but found the museum to offer quite a fun variety of exhibits. It is worth the stop. We spent an hour.

We had a little extra time in Valdez and chose to visit this museum. Found it very interesting and informative about the area. Due to historical view it also offered suggestions for other visiting areas. Glad we stopped for a hour to see this museum.

Small, but satisfying. This place packs a great punch! Tons of awesome stuffed animals and artifacts. Definitely my favorite museum in Valdez.

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!
