it is better to visit when it is not rainy, because on rainy days they close the upper deck where you can see the old kitchen, the cabins and the dining room. the visit is very interesting, and you get a good impression of life on board of the Klondike as it was those days.

No trip to Whitehorse, Yukon is complete without a visit to the S.S. Klondike. This ship is situated alongside the Yukon River where it flows through town. You can walk around on the deck and around the grounds where there are placards telling about history of this shipment and the Klondike gold rush.

We visited the S S Klondike as part of our tour of Whitehorse. It is an iconic part of the Yukon's history and has been restored and kept for all to enjoy.

It was cooler when parks Canada did guided tours, but even without its a neat place to visit. There's a lot more to learn in there than you would think!

This display is very good. The downside is that due to govt cutbacks the upper level has not been maintained and is now closed to visitors. To bad because it looks very good from what we could see. The price is right.... free! A brochures costs you 2.00 and is necessary if you want to do a self tour. The... More

We learned a great deal about the Yukon by visiting. The view from the deck of the Yukon River is fabulous.

Well-preserved and historic boat. I learned new information to me about the Yukon River and how it served as a transportation hub.
