We didn't know and stopped here first before going to the National Park Service Visitors Center, so we did not get the tour. There is an information sign in front and signs next to the displays in the Moore House, but after reading the reviews by others here, I can see that we missed out on a lot of the... More

Take time to leave the Main Street and visit Moores cabin, our visit was enhanced by a very enthusiastic park ranger who obviously loves his job and was very knowledgable about the history of the region and cabin

We enjoyed a short stop at the historic Moore Cabin cared for by the National Park Service. We got a look inside the old cabin before walking through the restored house next door. This was a nice stop for history while walking along Skagway’s main street enjoying the architecture of the old buildings.

We took a NPS free guided tour of the town and it included this cabin. Pat of this homestead is open only with a Ranger so the tour is essential. Very interesting and informative background of Skagway history. You get a peak into the "wild west" nature of the town and its frontier history. The Ranger was most knowledgeable of... More

It's a short walk away from the main shopping streets (five minutes maximum) and is worth it. There is the old log cabin and next door to it is the restored family house. We were the only ones there (apparently people can't be bothered to anything but buy jewelry) and it was great.

This is a free exhibit managed by the excellent National Parks Service. A visit to their main base in the town next to the railway station is worth a short visit but the Captain Moore Cabin and House gives a clearer and more interesting insight into the development of Skagway and how it all linked to the Klondike Gold Rush....

This is an intersting place to visit, a short walk takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the main street the cabin is locked but if you take a flsh photograph you can see whats inside, the main house is interesting and a showcase of how the well to do lived.

Took a free tour with the National Park Service and ended up here at the Moore House and Cabin. The tour guide was very informative and made the tour very interesting. The cabin is one of the first buildings in Skagway. Best part of the tour was it was free but you have to go to the Park Service Headquarters... More

The cabin is a just off the main street. It takes about 10 minutes to walk around the grounds and read the placards. Some interesting history of Skagway, but nothing more than a short self guided tour.
