Next, head to the Wrangell Museum, which houses a rich assortment of more than 5,000 historic photos and Native artifacts, a collection of Tlingit petroglyphs and fishing, mining and logging displays.
Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore independently are welcome to do so, but must make their own way back to the ship.
