This is really three sites. The first is a section of the Alaska Pipeline. A cutaway section show how it works and a little about what it took to build it. The second part was a train ride with stops to explain the gold mining process in Alaska. Finally you get to the Dredge where you get to pan for gold and keep what you find. Makes a great souvenier. Gift shop has free coffee and cookies (worth more than the gold I panned to me). You can walk through the dredge and get some idea what was involved. Most of our group didn't realize you could so spent most of their time in the gift shop. Educational and fun.
