Lots of interesting information about the Gold Rush. Shows perspectives of many different people and businesses involved. Definitely a fun way to spend about 1-1.5 hours

A great museum a little of the beaten track but well worth a visit . Gives a great history of why Seattle grew as a city and really brings the story of those who went on the Klondike gold rush to life , with some personal stories , very well done and free to go in

The tiny Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park is actually an excellent small museum on a seminal event in the history of Seattle, Alaska, and the emerging American West. Worth a visit for the fascinating story of courage and gold-fever, not to mention the novelty of visiting this National Park. Don't forget to get your National Park passport stamped!

Took a walk at this more historic end of the city and happened upon this museum. Explored the displays and left a donation. Great learning experience.
