Valdez Museum on Hazelet
The Valdez Museum on Hazelet is located four blocks from our Egan location. Its centerpiece is a 1:20 scale model of the Old Town Valdez as it appeared just before the massive 1964 Earthquake. The model is very precise and contains details down to flower boxes and bicycles. Accompanying the model are exhibits about the Earthquake, current seismic activity in our area, tsunami interactive, and every-day implements from the 50′s and 60′s. In addition to the model and exhibits, we show the award winning movie, “Between the Glacier & the Sea.” The movie features the history and highlights the impact of the 1964 Great Alaskan Earthquake with firsthand accounts of earthquake survivors.
