From the outside, SS Klondike looks like it would be a very interesting attraction. Unfortunately, it is closed from Labour Day. It is a short walk from the centre of Whitehorse. It is not big so even reading all the historical information and touring the inside probably won't take more than 1/2 hour.

We were the last people admitted on the day we went. Missed the last tour. As I was flying out and couldn't return the gate person took pity on us and let us aboard for free, which was nice. We didn't get a guided tour as a result but the staff were great at explaining things. This is a great... More

We were here too early in the day so we weren't able to tour the interior of the boat. The public is able to walk around the exterior and along the river. There is a plaque explaining the history of the boat.

This was an interesting place to visit. They want you to watch a short video before you go on the boat. That video was quite interesting especially since we stopped at a view point on the way to Dawson City that was featured in the video. The SS Klondike was easy to find and it was easy to imagine what... More

The boat was in service until the 1950's which is really astounding. It has been placed on dry land and is well preserved. Most of the areas are accessible or viewable. It is a very interesting look at what travel was like just 60 or so years ago on the Yukon. Tour is self guided and with the aid of... More

Wonderful example of what it was like to travell the Yukon Rivers so long ago. Compare then to now and you can get an idea of why we have a much longer lifespan.

This is a self-guided tour with a brochure that is detailed and there are signs through out the boat. If you ever wondered what it was like to travel back at the turn of the last century and even up to the 1950's, this is the place to see what luxury was like back then. We found the boat to... More
