Things To Know Before You Come

Our building

Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park in Seattle is not your "normal" park. It is a single building located in the Pioneer square Historic District.

There are no trees, animals, picnic tables, or camping spots. There are however shaded city parks, other museums, art galleries, and plenty of various food outlets within a five minute walk from our location.


Cadillac Hotel sign often is used to locate the park.

National park signage on the building is very limited although the park is easily located by looking for the Cadillac Hotel sign. The hotel went out of business in the mid 1960's.
