Wrangell Museum is at 296 Campbell Dr. The collection describes the colorful history of the Wrangell area. Of note are four beautiful Tlingit houseposts—carved in the 1700s, they are believed to be the oldest complete set in existence. A variety of displays detail early Russian and English settlement and the city's role in the 1861 Stikine gold rush. Spruceroot and cedarbark baskets, beadwork, stone tools and other artifacts crafted by Alaskan natives are shown.
