In Dawson City, you can see the one-time homes of writers Jack London, Pierre Berton and Robert Service all on the same street. The Jack London Interpretive Museum houses both a replica of the author's cabin and his original, restored food cache. The centre contains photos, documents, newspaper articles and other London memorabilia.

Enjoyed our knowledgeable docent very much at the Jack London cabin and museum. There were 2 interesting short films, very interesting photos of Jack London and his family. This was a must-see for me, and I'm very happy I visited.
