Came across this preserved riverboat from years past. This paddle wheeler is well preserved and a great photo stop. We used to have one anchored at the bottom of Lonsdale in N Vancouver, converted into a restaurant.

We started out at the information center. The helpful worker explained a bit about this attraction. Bottom Line is it is free, but you may want to buy the interesting brochure for a couple of dollars. We saw an interesting 15 minute video of the...More

This attraction consists of a short film and a self tour of the boat. Staff very helpful and good to see what it was like back in the day when these boats sailed the Yukon

The exterior of the historic SS Klondike is perfectly kept and a national treasure to all lucky enough to see her. We were too early in the season to see the inside.

Nice piece of history, The scale and size is not apparent, until you are stood beside it. We saw this as we did the riverside walk. Worth seeing, no admission to pay if you are just passing on the path.

Sitting by the Yukon River this stern-wheeler shows what was the major method of transportation on the river in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Well maintained and worth an hour to go and see it.

We had our free 2017 National Parks Pass so there was no admission charge. It would probably be worth the $2 to buy the tour brochure because things are not well-labelled. Overall a well-preserved Historic Site

This flat bottom huge wooden ship is sitting on earth next to the Yukon river upon which she sailed for many years. The Klondike is massive in size. We walked around it because she was closed for the evening. An inside tour would have great.
