We could only go on the main deck where the engines and supplies were stored. One deck was closed because it was raining and the others were not available anytime. The artifacts were awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

We enjoyed walking through the old sternwheeler. Wish we could have seen the old dining area but it was closed.

We did the self guided tour for $2. It was very neat to see. You could easily understand what you were looking at. The only downside is that parks Canada is doing maintenance on the second and upper most decks of the ship.

Interesting to look at but not a place to spend a lot of time unless you really enjoy reading. It is cool to walk thru though and have a look at everything, and it is restored really well. Attraction is free, but they want you to spend $2 on a brochure for a self guided walk. Worth the price for... More

The SS Klondike is a steam-powered sternwheeler that carried passengers, cargo, and ore up and down the Yukon River. Now restored and safely located on dry land, this vessel is available for your examination. There is also a video that provides additional information.

This preserved piece of Yukon history by Parks Canada shows in part what it must have been like living in the area in days gone by. Well presented with knowledgeable staff who show great enthusiasm for their work.

This ship is very well preserved and provides a fascinating insight into the gold rush past. A definite recommendation, though sadly some areas of the boat are inaccessible at the moment due to structural problems.

There was no charge to go onto the boat, but the brochure for the self-guided tour cost $2 CAD. But only a few of the items in the brochure were available and the rest were blocked off from the public.

Too bad the federal government stopped the complete tours, a very interesting piece of Canadian history.

WhenIi lived here in the 60's there were 3 boats unfortunately a fire destroyed 2 of them. Very well restored and worth the visit.
