What I saw of the ship was great, I liked the supplies they had piled up and the quarters for the workers. I was very disappointed that we couldn't go into the dining room area or a room where the passengers stayed. You could peek through to see in but that was all. The railings while authentic weren't very safe.... More

A very welcome stop for us at the Klondike. A look at the ship and understanding its place makes for a better understanding of yukon trade and history.

If you are driving to Alaska and stop here, see the Klondike. If you are driving the highway, this is the reason you drove, to see the history and sights along the way. Vewry interesting.

Great bit of history, but could only walk around the outside as it is closed during winter! Come on Whitehorse! Loads of visitors in winter.....open a few historical sites!

This place not far from city center. It's the ship from Gold rush era basically but I was more attracted to the river just beside this ship. It was beautiful with all the colorfull trees.

There are only tours during the summer. This boat is still worth a look in the winter but you can only look at the outside. It is lit up at night too. No fee to see the outside.
