Things To Do

The Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park Visitor Center offers visitors a chance to step back in time and journey to the Yukon gold fields of Canada as thousands did in 1897 and 1898. Interactive exhibits highlight Seattle's role in this international event. Touch screen computers allow visitors to experience the gold rush through the eyes of actual stampeders by referring to their journals and personal accounts.

The park is free and daily until 5 pm. We are closed Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.
