Earn a unique Skagway souvenir - a Junior Ranger badge! Stop by the historic Pantheon Saloon for hands-on activities. Learn about the gold rush while you
  • dig for fossils
  • try on Victorian dress-up clothes
  • practice rafting down the river
  • play Victorian games
  • explore history using an iPad

Earn your badge by completing 6 iPad activities.  Most can earn their badge in about 20 minutes, but some folks stay longer to dig for fossils, pose in dress-up clothes, and play with Victorian toys.

iPad activites require reading skills or a parent or partner who can read.  Hands-on activites are good for all ages from toddlers to grandparents.

Pets are allowed in Skagway's Historic District, but only service animals are allowed in the Junior Ranger Activity Center.

Entrance fees may apply, see Fees & Passes information.

Located at 4th and Broadway, the former Pantheon Saloon is today's Junior Ranger Activity Center.  Stop by to earn your Junior Ranger or Deputy Ranger badge.

Open late May-early September

Open Monday- Friday 10a-12p and 1pm-3pm.
