Moore's cabin is well worth the detour. The cabin itself is quite small but the house has much more info. Overall, it doesn't take a huge amount of time but there is a lot of useful information that is presented in a well restored historic setting. When we visited, there was a Ranger available and she added a number of... More

We did a Forest Service tour that took us through Moore's old home. I has been restored to as close as possible to the way it was 100 years ago. Fascinating look at the way life used to be.

Skagway isn't big by any stretch of the imagination, yet on our cruise we had a long day here, so there was more than enough time to see everything there was to see in the town. We had the Parks Department self guided walking tour map as their morning tours were full, so that gave us good information on the... More

We got off the ship early and walked around town, mainly looking at the buildings, etc. We came across the William Moore cabin and found the history very interesting. You can see the original cabin and then the "new" house next door. There is a museum in the new house that opens at 10:00 but we were to early.

This is a great place to visit & get an understanding of early life in Skagway. It is great to see the early wooden house of the Moore's, nicely preserved, along with the newer house.

We went on a walking tour that was free and took about an hour to do. It was most informative on local culture. Bruce took us around and was so enthusiastic in his story telling. This starts at the tourist info building and has a movie and is really good.

Captain Moore was the founder of the gold rush town of Skagway. The cabin gives you insight into the lives of early settlers in Skagway. The National Park Service rangers are very knowledgeable.
