We took the free bus to the village and as soon as we stepped onto the premises were approached and told it would be $5 each. We weren't given any verbal or printed information about tours, totem poles, carvers, etc.and didn't see anything posted anywhere. When we started to enter the long house we were quickly told it was only for tour groups. We wandered around looking at the totem poles and looked through the windows into the building where a woodcarver sat, not carving. While it presented some photo opportunities, it wasn't really worth the visit or the fee without a guided tour.
