Very interesting. So many artifacts to see. Close to hotel, even in showers. Short walk on 5th street from hotel. Very friendly staff even though it was near closing time.
Dawson City was a really fun place to visit, the museum was interesting but the best thing was Gerties Gambling Hall and Saloon. The Casino is non profit with all prceeds going to the city and schools. The entertainment was a lot o fun. Also the Klondike paddle wheel boat ride was very scenic.
I really like the exhibits, and it is a lovely old building. The two workers or docents we experienced were very helpful and wanted to make sure we got the most out of our visit.
Staff very helpful, enjoyed talking to them. We did a guided town talk which was interesting - had to drop out early before the end as we were so tired but well worth doing.
Very nice place if you want to learn about some history in the area. Cost was $7 for seniors. Had a young man who went thru the demo on the shaker machine for Gold, was quite interesting is you have not seen it.
Wonderul museum in a beautiful building. Not enormous, an hour is enough to get round. Reasonably priced at $9 per adult. Very interesting locomotive exhibition in the train shed next door detailing the history of the engines during the gold rush, this included a guided tour. Recommended.
This is a very well presented museum with several floors to visit. There are interactive displays with all manner of information about the north, the goldrush and the people before and after. Well worth the visit for minimum price. Fun theatrical sketches too!
Loved the museum. it told alot about the history of not only the town, but the while gold rush area. I am glad they are preserving this information. And nice to see some history about the Alaska/chicken area too.
