    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We're staying in the center itself, the interesting stuff to see is just outside our motel. We stroll around and we really found some stuff and didn't understand why is it here. Well this place was burned down in 2012 and the mess is still here and we thought maybe this was part of sightseeing

    If strolling you will find the museums and continue walking around and very anxious of what we have found. Trading post, some studio galery and so on. But messes outside, too bad it ruin the view

    The owner of the motel has to do with this mess, it has to be back in order but due to rebuilding the place they do not have time yet. We were curious what's inside, and is free to walk around is open to public we've seen some visitors stopby and also anxious by checking out place

    The museum is located on the yard of Copper center lodge, but this is not open all year round. The opening is from June 1 through September 15. Open 7 days a week from 11am to 5 pm. This was not open yet during our visit, I ask a little information to the owner about it

    There were two cabin to visit, the first one you can view many historic photos documents, items from Kennicott Copper Mine. The second cabin is dedicated to the Gold Rush and is filled with photos and artifacts of that time period

    The museum is free admission but donations appreciated. The museum is operated by the Copper Valley Historical Society, a non profit group of volunteers who opened the museum in 1984 and it happen that is in the yard of the lodge

    Privy to the first of the famous Copper River Reds, this is the only option for road weary travellers to eat. Ringwald Blix built the original Roadhouse in1896 and Copper Center quickly became an important trade and supply center for the region. In 1932 the original roadhouse was replaced by the current Roadhouse.
