Museums and Historical

The rich cultural history of Ketchikan isn’t just showcased at the Tongass Historical Museum, it’s palpable just about anywhere you go in town. From the waterfront, home to George Inlet Cannery and the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show, to Creek Street, where loggers, miners, fishermen and other local miscreants went to misbehave at Dolly’s House back in the town’s lawless years.
