No tours during the winter

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.

recent restoration with incredible attention to detail make this better than ever. every tarp, towel, napkin, etc. redone/refurbished. fascinating even for those landlubbers like myself. no cost spared in restoration, needs to be seen by all to be adequately appreciated.

Very interesting History and Tour. Highly Recommended - BUT call in advance to verify access because recent budget cuts have restricted tours and hours substantially.

Usually I only walk by. haven't been on a tour in years. Not sure what they're like thanks to Stephen Harpers cuts to our National Parks

We visited this lake ship on winter and it was very, very cold. But this is a wonderful piece of history from the gold rush at the Yukon. The river, the close mountains are the perfect frame for this attraction. You got to visit!

Really worth while spending some time on the boat. Gives you an authentic experience of post gold rush era. Too bad Harper thinks history should be changed to suit his whims, not preserved for all to admire. PC government cut so much money to parks and historic sites in the Yukon the SS Klondike can not have guided tours any... More

Didn't enter the boat/museum since it is in the month of December, it's closed. But you will see this as you walk along the trails along the Yukon river. There is a small shelter near this boat that we almost missed, and it has stories/history of this boat and Whitehorse.

Would have loved to be able to go inside the boat more, but peeking through the windows was enough to see some of the cool artifacts they have!

It was closed because it was winter but you must go anyway because it's such an amazing photo spot.....The Klondike history I found interesting, especially how she got to that spot.
