We visited Caribou Crossing as part of the Whitepass Railway and Yukon Expedition tour out of Skagway. What a disappointment this venue was. Caribou Crossing is a make belief reconstruction of a pioneer trading post from the gold rush era, consisting of fake façades. The price of the whole tour included a BBQ lunch, which consisted of chicken, a minute dollop of coleslaw, a baked potato and a roll, accompanied by a cup of coffee or tea. This was all dished up army barrack style. Although tasty, it was cheap fare designed for the bus loads of tourists. However, the museum has a nice display of stuffed bear, moose, caribou, goats, etc, but lacked in depth information about the history and geology of the region. The museum is not enough justification to visit this venue.
