Returned to its former glory - lots of cool display items. Staff were there to answer questions (very informed) and a good film before hand.

Spent around 45 minutes, went around the entire ship. They have kept the place clean yet rustic, portraying the gold rush days. It's nice.

The whole history of the beginning of the last century is summarized in this visit. Especially with regard to navigation on the Yukon. You can not miss it because you can see it from a distance. When you enter it is even bigger than outside.

A great throw back to yesteryear! The boat itself was the last and largest paddle wheel which plied the Yukon river. The cargo on board is very cool from the old crates to the vintage barrels a real treat to see
