Valdez Museum on Egan
The Valdez Museum on Egan, located just two blocks from most hotels in Valdez, is a long-standing favorite of Valdez visitors. Exhibits about our community’s past tell the stories of early exploration, native culture, gold rush, founding of Valdez, the Richardson Highway, the history of the pipeline, the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, and the history of Alaska Bush pilots. On display here are two beautifully restored turn-of-the-century fire engines, a lighthouse lens from Prince William Sound, and re-creations of a prospector’s cabin and an early Valdez parlor. In our Egan Gallery we feature temporary art exhibits.
