Three large totems greet you in the lobby of the center while a school of silver salmon, suspended from the ceiling, leads you toward a slice of nicely re-created rainforest. Upstairs, the exhibit hall features sections on Southeast Alaska’s ecosystems and Alaska Native traditions. You can even view wildlife here: there’s a spotting scope trained on Deer Mountain for mountain goats, while underwater cameras in Ketchikan Creek let you watch thousands of salmon struggling upstream to spawn.
