Fodor's Review

Exhibits at the Cordova Museum document early explorers to the area, Native culture, the Kennicott Mine and Copper River and Northwestern Railway era, and the growth of the commercial fishing industry. An informative brochure outlines a self-guided walking tour of the town's historic buildings. The gift shop sells local postcards, Cordova and Alaskan gifts, and regional history books.

Cordova Museum Review

My husband and our friends spent hours in the small museum. When we arrived the museum was closed because the employee was ill, but we approached the librarian next door and she graciously opened up the museum for us and left us to look. The history contained in this small space is amazing and the helpfulness we experienced was wonderful.
