    We've paid a reduced input of about € 3, it is a mid-priced, visit is on your own and it can last between 30 and 60 minuitos, have an interactive video a little "Chorra", but if you like the story, you must enter. I would not say that is mandatory...

    Read every single plaque in the museum and was done in 12 minutes. The museum has room for expansion but all of the display was in one room, apx 20 by 25 ft and held mostly recent works, by those wishing to keep the history and skills alive, for the next generation. Even at $3, it was overpriced.

    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..

Where to stay in Ketchikan

For a small city, Ketchikan boasts a surprisingly diverse array of accommodations. A downtown hotel is the best option for those who want to stay within walking distance of the city’s restaurants, bars, stores, and attractions, plus it offers proximity to the water. If you have access to a car, you can save a few dollars and enjoy some of Alaska's famous scenery by staying farther out of town. The area's selection of bed and breakfasts includes a number of quirky establishments full of character. The surrounding Tongass National Forest has a well-equipped campground and RV park.
