Museums

Alaska has a rich history that began with the United States on October 18th 1967. Then, Secretary of State William Seward purchased the land from the Russians for a mere 2 cents an acre. Since the purchase, Alaska has contributed billions of dollars to the U.S. economy in gold, oil, and fisheries.

A visit to the museums in the towns scattered throughout the state offers a glimpse of the Alaska Native culture, how the original settlers survived in the arctic climate and the construction of the 800 mile pipeline from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez. Be sure to stop and learn about Alaska in its entirety as you Vanture from town to town..
