We're not just in the community, we're part of the community.


Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park is more than a visitor center in Pioneer Square. We're a base of operations for work that is carried on by NPS staff and our partners to connect youth and other new audiences to public lands and our shared histories. Together, we reach and serve more than the 60,000 people who walk into our visitor center each year.
