- Bronze statue, "The Sourdough," donated by the Alaska Yukon Pioneers fraternal organization
- Daily journal kept by Robert Moran while he personally saw to the delivery of 12 steamboats to the mouth of the Yukon River in 1898
- Sleeping bag prototype and its 1898 patent certificate
- A set of gold scales used by George Washington Carmack
