  • A small town museum with great presentations and lots of excellent displays. Our rather hurried visit only allowed us to scratch the surface of the museum's offerings, but what we saw was impressive.  more »
  • Well presented this two store Museum gives a clean picture of the life of the pioneers. Sometimes I was staring at the faces and it was like they were telling me their story.  more »
  • Excellent Museum! Lots and lots of artifacts from the gold rush period. Lots of information and Exhibits from this area. Lots of information on gold mining. Seniors get a discount.  more »

  • Quaint local museum worth the time to wander through.
  • Was hoping to find more local history relating to the Klondike Gold Rush. Still a nice place to peruse.
  • Interesting and informative. Be sure to visit the train shed.
  • Very informative, Miner's Meeting show is worth seeing.
