If walls could talk, would it have a story to tell. History is so thick inside these walls you could cut it with a knife!

We visited this place two years ago while on our way to Skagway, Alaska. We always stop by the Tourist Information Center wherever we go. It's a must for any traveler. You can get all the information or most of it by merely stopping and asking the information staff members. The S.S. Klondike can be boarded free of charge ,so... More

Spent an hour touring the boat and short film offered by parks Canada. Our information officer was a local and he shared lots of facts of SS Klondikes adventures and the atlin barge also onsite. Nice river pathway to sit enjoy river views.

It was only about 100 years ago that this was the route to the Yukon once the ice had broken on the rivers to allow passage. Certainly wasn't a luxurious way to travel.

First of all, it's free to go on-board, so no reason not to visit. Stop at the visitors center first and they'll explain it all. It's great that this ship was saved for posterity and it was interesting to visit the various parts of the ship. For example, they have the hold decked out as if the ship was loaded... More
