The museum provides a good introduction to the early inhabitants of the coast and the building of Totem pole. It also has a group of well laid out exhibits on the mining, salmon fishing industries that provide the economic basis for the modern town.

A nice museum providing great information on the history of the area and people. The museum shop provides very reasonably priced souvenirs. Also a good place to pick up literature and maps to explore the rest of Wrangell island.

Really enjoyed passing a couple of hours in this interesting museum. Tells the history of Wrangell using a range of exhibits. Came out feeling I knew much more about the island.
