Where are the totum poles?

Where are the totum poles? Only at Bright State Park or are there others closer to the cruise pier?

You can also see them at Saxman Native Village, but would need to take the city bus or a cab. There are also tours that you can take that includes events at the village. The park you refer to is Totem Bight.

There are a few poles downtown, as well. The Chief Johnson pole is near the entrance to Creek Street, just a couple of blocks from the docks. There's an eagle pole/carving right at the dock near Berth Two. There is a pole at the entrance to Whale Park, which is basically a green belt just a couple of blocks down Mission Street, and a small collection of poles at the Cape Fox Lodge, on the hill above downtown. A funicular from Creek Street can take you up there. The Totem Heritage Museum has the very old poles in a climate-controlled environement near the City Park, which is an easy walk downhill from the Cape Fox Lodge. There is a small admission charge for that museum. All of these poles are within easy walking distance of the docks.

We are visiting via the Disney Cruise line with a family ranging in age from 86 years young to 2 years old. Which place would be best for Totem Pole viewing?
