In Dawson City, you can see the one-time homes of writers Jack London, Pierre Berton and Robert Service all on the same street. The Jack London Interpretive Museum houses both a replica of the author's cabin and his original, restored food cache. The centre contains photos, documents, newspaper articles and other London memorabilia.

It is only $5/person. There were walls lined with old pics and documents. There were videos and movie clips. It is a not for profit museum. They also have 1/2 of his cabin there. The other half is in California.

Enjoyed our knowledgeable docent very much at the Jack London cabin and museum. There were 2 interesting short films, very interesting photos of Jack London and his family. This was a must-see for me, and I'm very happy I visited.

How many of us grew up reading Jack London? I did. For those who also grew up reading his works, this is a great little attraction.
