Museums


Ketchikan Museums collect, preserve, interpret and creatively share the history and culture of our region to serve, educate, engage and enrich our community. We invite you to visit both of our museums—the Tongass Historical Museum and Totem Heritage Center!

The Tongass Historical Museum and Totem Heritage Center are both open to the public. Open hours at both facilities are 1-5:00 PM Tuesday through Saturday.  If you are uncomfortable visiting during public open hours, please call 907-225-5900 to schedule an appointment to visit. Appointments available 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM Tuesday - Friday.
