Worth a stop by to understand the Yukon trade

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.

Wasn't open for viewing - but still interesting to look at this attraction. Historical. Within walking distance of downtown Whitehorse.

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.

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.
