Came here as the prime attraction of our Ketchikan tour and were impressed. Beautiful collection of totem poles with solid background info. Easily accessible even for outdoors, and there was a nice gift shop and public facilities. Good way to spend an hour in Ketchikan.

Very welcoming village. We watched a display of traditional dancing which was lovely as even the little children were dancing. The totem poles were explained along with their history. We watched some carving being done. A lovely little gift shop on site.
