My sister is very interested in Native American art. We learned the history and meaning of the totems. We were able to discuss them with Native Americans, which made it more interesting. Highly recommended.
The tour started with a video of the native people of Alaska but kind of fizzled out after that. We were to look at their artwork which consisted of about 5 pieces and then take a 50 yard nature walk before going to the ceremony...More

There is no admission fee for either park. I've heard the parks are similar, and quite close to each other. I chose to visit Potlatch because I did a Celebrity cruise tour for US$75 that included a bus tour from the cruise dock through Ketchikan up to Potlatch Totem Park, a guided tour through the Totem Park, bus ride back and then the Lumberjack Show. (I think it was called the Ketchikan Highlights and Lumberjack Show).
