“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

The Seward Museum is a hidden treasure located inside of the Seward Library. It has displays on the railroad system, sled dogs, early Seward, and so much more. It houses a wealth of history and information that you wouldn't expect to find. We also were able to see a video on the 1964 earthquake in another room. There was a small admission fee but very well worth it. Plan on a few hours. Just a little side note. The purple tiles are awesome on the outside of the building.

“Nice information, poor lighting”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

There was some interesting historical information at the museum and a very informative video on the big earthquake. The lighting in the museum left something to be desired.

“A wonderful surprise”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

The film about the great 1964 9.2 earthquake. As a resident of Southern California, we take our earthquakes seriously, and the original 8mm film footage taken of this event is singularly worth the trip. They advertise that the film is played at 2:00 pm, but when I arrived after 3:00pm, the librarian was happy to start it for me then. As I left, she was starting it again for others who had arrived part-way through my viewing. It shares space with the Library, and it's worth seeing.

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Lots of very important history of Seward and Alaska. Make sure to watch the video on the 1964 Earthquake, very informative and you get a personal account of how the earthquake affected the inhabitants of Seward and the surrounding area.

$5 per person to get in. Great idea for a rainy day.

“We learned so much!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Thanks to all those who developed the interesting exhibits! Now we know about Alaska Nellie and the 1964 earthquake. (I remember reading about it in my Weekly Reader!) There's a lot on display and we were fascinated.
