Roadhouse Re-Imagined

Did you notice that something was missing last month?  We sure did. For over 20 years the Museum Board, Staff and Volunteers have come together to put on a wonderful community event to celebrate and raise funds for the Museum by enjoying a family style dinner, entertainment, dessert dash, raffles, door prizes and auctions. This year, due to the COVID 19 global pandemic, Roadhouse Fundraiser has moved online.  One of the fun activities of Roadhouse has been the auctions. Since we cannot all gather, we have brought the auction to you.

Valdez Museum COVID-19 Impact

By all accounts, 2020 was supposed to be a year that the Valdez Museum broke attendance and sales records.  Then everything ceased when all Museums and Libraries around the State closed on March 13, 2020. Thinking back over the last eight months, the global COVID 19 pandemic has not only forced us to rethink our daily lives and the way we work, but also the way our community functions. It requires museums like the Valdez Museum to redefine our role in society, both broadly and specifically within the communities we serve. I am delighted to report that the Museum has adapted to what we call the "new normal."

Since reopening to the public on July 1, 2020 the "new normal" has settled in at the Museum. We have a COVID Mitigation Plan with health and safety precautions in place, and operations are going well. Summer is when we typically generate 40% of our annual operating budget and in a normal year the Museum serves roughly 24,000 visitors annually. But as of October 31 2020, visitation is down 21,452 people through the door, with only 1,855 visitors, equating a $124,686 loss in earned revenues, as well as laying off one year around attendant and eliminating four to five seasonal summer positions. The impact of COVID 19 is not just a health issue, but loss of income and of jobs.

Throughout all of the uncertainty, our number one goal continues to be safety for staff, volunteers and visitors. As we look to the future, we need your help to remain sustainable and successful!
