  • Our tour guide was great and the totem poles and the stories were interesting. Seeing the array of poles there and the history of each pole was interesting. The clan house and the related stories was something you could get your head around picturing 60 to 80 individuals in the clan house and the central fire pit; as well as the story of the children being responsible for keeping the fire going. Good visit worth the price.
  • This is an amazing place to visit, especially after being on a cruise ship for 5 days. The flora and fauna are breathtaking and they give an amazing glimpse into the climate here in Ketchikan, my favorite stop in Alaska. The totem poles tell a story, each and every one, some describe a beginning and some an end, and there are no inanimate carvings, only humans and animals, and spirit animals. It is a place to breathe deep and realize just how small yet significant man is on this planet. It is a wonder to imagine teachings and folklore from years before us, and to ponder what it will take to preserve the past. Please visit this humble yet proud place, it is truly remarkable.
