Take the tour, the Alaskan native dancers are a must see as well as the Clan house and Totem poles. There are tour buses or call Sourdough Taxi and for a reasonable fare they will bring you out.

Not much to see here. We were extremely disappointed. Wish we would have gone to Totem Bight instead.

A disappointment of an excursion. At $50 it was way overpriced. The villagers seemed nice and a few sincere. Most clearly though tipped their hands that they can't believe the cruise ships are still sending people to the excursion.

My husband and I went off the beaten path to visit this site. Perhaps on a guided tour with more information, it would be interesting. Unlike the other Totem Park, you had to pay extra for the guide book. Wasn't that interesting to view to...More

5 bucks to get in and you are in and out in a few minutes. You have to pay extra to go into the carving building. Not worth the cab ride.
