This was our second trip to Wrangell and the museum was something I wanted to see again. It's a good over-view of Wrangell. Suprising for such a small town.

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.
