  • This museum is fantastic. Whoever is interested in the magnificent history of the Yukon and the Klondike should visit it and its magnitude of historic artifacts. I especially appreciated the unbelievable variety of gold samples with notes about the claims they were found on. As I had been invited to the claim of Joe Langevin on Victoria Creek and was allowed to shovel and pan there - Joe shared the findings afterwards with me back in the 70ies - I love my gold until today and was too happy to see the gold from other claims. Enjoy it as much as I did. Klaus Ollmann from Hamburg, Germany
