The sculpture garden features the work of several local artists. Most of the sculptures are larger than life and are quite detailed. It is a nice way to experience the history and local culture.

Our Skagway tour included this attraction, but we had no idea of what it would be like. Quick explanation and then we went inside the fence. Lots of great bronze sculptures, well worth the visit.
