This was interesting to hear what life was like during the golden years in Alaska. In the end you pan for gold which ends up being a time where they are trying to sell you jewelry etc. for your new found gold.
You also get a chance to see the Alaska Pipelie up close and personal - also interesting.
This is a very low-key attraction so a nice break in high-energy excursions. But I wouldn't have done this if it wasn't already included in our cruise-tour package.
