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.

Very interesting and full of history of the Yukon. I enjoyed it Immensely! The tour guides were very knowledgable of the ship, and could answer questions about the ship that weren't part of the tour.

I love the way this stern wheeler has been preserved in history. It tells us the story of the Klondike gold rush. So many features to see & admire. Lovely place for wedding photos as well as school trips.

Largest river boat that ran on the Yukon River between Whitehorse and Dawson City. It has been preserved by Canada Parks in a great setting along the Yukon River. Every Christmas the City of Whitehorse lights up the boat.

We were fascinated by the pictures and stories of the riverboats that we saw at the Transportation Museum and the MacBride Museum. Having a real riverboat to check out was something we really looked forward to. Unfortunately, it is a Parks Canada operation and had already closed for the season. We could only admire it from a distance. We visited... More

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.
