We just left this place. Got a lot of nice pictures. Could not view the inside. Ample parking. Near the Yukon river.

A free walkthrough of an old cargo boat with a 20 min video preview of how the river and boats were used and operated back in the early 1900's. Very interesting and authentic.

Very well maintained and quite interesting. There were a lot of areas roped which we would love to have seen the insides of the cabins.

The day we went it was raining heavily so we were unable to go onto the second floor of the boat. You tour the boat on your own although there was a parks Canada staff available to answer questions on the boat and one in the building beside it. After seeing the S.S Keno in Dawson City in which there... More

We travel thousands of miles to see these sights and then Parks Canada does not have enough staff to allow us to tour the entire vessel. Most areas were roped off and had to be viewed from across most of the ship. A heritage sight is for the people not a select few.

This is one of the best if not the best self guided tour of a vessel I've been on. The boat is on dry land and the displays on the boat are just like when it was being used up and down the Yukon River. Get the booklet, just $2.00 Can. This is definitely a must see when in Whitehorse.

This was a very interesting tour tour of a large paddle wheel steamboat. During the tour you get to visit most of the interior and exterior of the boat so you get a real,feel for the size and working of one of these vessels.

Located on the beautiful (and extremely powerful and rapid) Yukon River the SS Klondike is beautifully maintained and restored piece of Yukon history. Great helpful Parks Canada staff gave safety briefings and answered any questions. Glad we did it.

We stopped in to see the S.S. Klondike when we arrived in Whitehorse. They have done a great job setting it up as it was in its hey day. I recommend paying for the self-guided pamphlet as it points out several of the interesting things on the boat.
