It is walking distance from the city center, and I would highly recommend visiting this all steam ship. It is a very important part of the Yukon's history that you don't want to miss.

This is a really interesting National Historic Site that tells one of the many fascinating stories of the Yukon. The interior is great & well worth a visit.

We parked the car here and did the exhibit then proceeded down bike/walking path to downtown. Chatted with a few locals on our way to explore some shops and go to dinner. Perfect. Easy... More

The tour of this ship grants us a peek into the life of those living during the Gold Rush and how they experienced life and travel on the Yukon River. Clean, well-developed tour.

We walked through the park and crossed the road to the SS Klondike. Unfortunately it had closed for the season but we were still able to walk around and read the informative plaques that they had on the history of the ship.

a look into a bygone era of river boats, not in the best of repair but certainly worth a visit. Interesting to see how important this form of transport was not too long ago and make one appreciate their importance in trade in early days.
