Nolan Center Review

Wrangell's museum moved into a building that acts as a centerpiece for cultural life in Wrangell. Exhibits provide a window on the region's rich history. Featured pieces include the oldest known Tlingit house posts dating from the late 18th century, decorative posts from Chief Shakes's clan house, petroglyphs, century-old spruce-root and cedar-bark baskets, masks, gold-rush memorabilia, and a fascinating photo collection. If you're spending any time in town, don't pass this up.

Civic Center. Also in the building are the town's Civic Center, a 200-seat movie theater–performance space–convention center, and the Wrangell Visitor Center. The latter is staffed when the museum is open, and has details on local adventure options. 296 Campbell Dr., 99929. 907/874–2829 or 800/367–9745. www.wrangellalaska.org.
