Default Best Totem viewing?

I'm on the Star Princess July12th and we stop at Ketchikan, Juneau and
Skagway. I'm wondering about the best place to see lots of totems and
some carving in progress. Saxman Village? Totem Bight Park? or the
top of the tramway in Juneau?

I'm putting all my excursion budget into White Pass railway in Skagway so
would like to see things on my own.

Would it be easy to get to Saxman Village?

Thanks for all input.

Happy Seas -- Sue

Ketchikan is all about totems and plenty of them. For carving, look at Saxman, which usually has them. Easy to get to from the dock visitor center tour building. Verify you will be able to get into the Carving shed, some time frames are ship contracted. Totem Heritage Museum, walkable from the dock, without mobility limitations, offers a wonderful look at historic totems with the preservation the basis of the museum. All about Ketchikan are totems, budget some time to get out and see them. Especially the Eagle right outside the tunnel, and several- Whale Park, entrance to Creek St. Ride the funicular up to the Fox Lodge, and go out the back, beautiful display of Totems. Also a small exhibit in the Public Lands, Discovery Center.
