The "Park" is all the buildings around town. We grabbed a map, and took the self-guided tour. There are a number of original buildings, a few exhibits, and lots of historical information.

We took advantage of the walking tour led by a ranger for a historical overview of the town, went inside the Moore house.

1/2 the reason to go to Skagway is the history. While the town has been over-run with cruise ships and the throngs of people they bring, the history is every where. If you like history, you must checkout all the park service offers.

There are a series of several buildings in this National Park Office. We visited two-the main office which is an old railway office & has several nice exhibits. We also visited the gift shop area where I was able to stamp my National Park Passport book, however they did not have the passport book stamps available for sale. That was... More

Great way to kill a day in Skagway ... FOR FREE. We took the great ranger tour of downtown Skagway and then did a hike to Dewey Lake and Reid Falls. Trail was well marked and great exercise to burn off those heavy cruise meals!!!! You don't have to spend $100s of dollars on an excursion. You can hike for... More

We took our three young grandchildren here in the afternoon of our day in Skagway. They were eager to complete the Jr. Ranger program and all "earned" their badges, but the set-up was really more for older kids. A little more direction for the smaller ones (and me!) or some hands-on help from the Ranger (we were the only ones... More

The "Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park" is a series of buildings in downtown Skagway that have been preserved and turned into exhibits. The buildings are spread throughout the downtown area and have a variety of displays from the historical railroad buildings to a saloon. There's not a whole lot to see, but we enjoyed walking all around Skagway and... More

Tony from Michigan was our guide. He is full of enthusiasm, this job fits him well. Brought the gold rush alive with the stories. Strongly suggest that you sign up for one of the free tours at the visitors center. Center opens at 8:30, select the tour you wish, get your free ticket and enjoy.

Were in town on a cruise and just decided to walk around. We signed up for the free park ranger guided tour of town. It was worth it. The young man did a great job telling us all about the town and the gold rush. He really seemed to enjoy his job. It took about an hour and you hit... More
