It is an honour to walk around such piece of goldrush history...artifacts are AMAZING. The dining room tables are all set, and one can just invasion the patrons, dressed in their finest, dining there.
One of the sleep quarters has a pair of long johns hanging on a clothesline to dry...So nostalgic...

This was a truly wonderland way to spend an hour. We learnt so much about the bygone days of the stern wheel riverboats and those who travelled in them. There's a film to watch before you 'board' which gives a fascinating history into life on the Yukon, and the whole exhibit is free of charge. The Parcs Canada guide on the boat even let us into the roped-off wheelhouse. Beautifully preserved and well worth a visit!

This was a wonderful exhibit. Be sure to go and see the film prior to touring the boat. It is a self-guided tour and it is free. It was one of the most interesting pieces of history in the area. Unbelievable history lesson. We took a lot of pictures and a guide in the wheel house provided exceptional information on the captains of the boat.

It was a great example of the gold rush. Parks Canada was doing some work so a small staircase was only open to get up to the top but that happens
