History of Skagway and the Gold Rush
Aug 2019
I think that you would be missing out if you did not stop in this museum. It is a clean, well-organized stop and has a great deal of interesting information. The Gold Rush was such an essential part of the history of Skagway that you do not want to visit and miss any of the details.

Fun and interesting!

They have displays showing and explaining the early days of Skagway, as a starting point for the Alaska Gold Rush. Amazing that so many people went, and so few died! I could not have survived the trek to White Horse at any stage of my life!

Don't miss this place!
Sep 2019
following our train ride we nearly missed this place and were so glad that we didn't - it really was the icing on the cake and made us fully aware of the difficult journey that the gold rush pioneers had to face. In our opinion - unmissable

Very nice little museum with many interesting displays. As an added benefit our paid entrance ticket got us into a concert by local musicians.

Very intersting local history ...
Jul 2019
This museum is several blocks away from the cruise ship docking area, but still within a 10 minute walk. There are numerous displays of Skagway’s history and its role in the gold rush. The highlight of this local museum is the short film shown in the small theatre. The images and coverage of the Stampeders and the hardships they faced is excellent.

Sweetest Little Museum in Alaska
Jul 2019 • Friends
Happened to find this sweet little museum in Skagway and popped in. Cost us all of $2 each. Loved it so much that I donated extra to their kitty. Excellent information about the local history, culture and animal life. So interesting! It gave me a much better understanding of Skagway and Alaska. Crazy artifacts that I have never seen before. And their small gift shop was well curated and distinct from the local tourist shops...spent some shopping money there! It’s only one block off the main drag, you can spend an easy 45 minutes to an hour enjoying the displays and you will feel like your $2 was well spent. Good spot to get out of the drizzle and the gardens surrounding the museum were special. Highly recommend.

Who would have thought!

Seeing how Skagway is not a major metropolis, this small museum is chocked full of very interesting displays of a wide variety of Alaska items. I lost my better half for a couple of hours as she was in total enjoyment of this place. I'd recommend this to anyone who's checking out Skagway.
