  • It's hard to believe that the entrance fee for this museum is so small, given how rich it is in diverse and intriguing historical artifacts. Any visitor to Ketchikan will learn more from ten minutes at the Tongass Historical Museum than in hours wandering between shops downtown. I can't wait to see this museum expand its exhibit space even more in the future.
  • The very interesting history of Ketchikan laid out in historic photos and artifacts for a very nominal fee. Definitely worth a visit if you're interested in history..
  • Very informative with photo ops.
  • Great
