In this section you will find virtual exhibits that explore the history of the Valdez region and exhibits of art by Alaskan artists. Since the March 2020 outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent 14 week museum closure, the VMHA has launched an initiative to provide our visitors with a quality museum experience to be enjoyed from your own home or any mobile device.

The Valdez Museum reopened to the public on July 1, 2020. But by presenting Crowley’s artwork in an online format, the VMHA hopes to reach a broader audience, so visitors to the Museum website can appreciate Crowley’s works in the safe environment of their own homes.
Raptora Borealis combines natural history with fine art, showcasing the artist’s woodcut prints of the birds of America’s northern latitudes. The exhibit explores Alaska’s birds of prey and their connections to folklore, traditions, historical and scientific lore.
