    If you visit one museum in Alaska, then make sure it's this one. A very modest entry fee and the exhibits are well displayed and covers the exiting history of Alaska brilliantly. This is not some stuf...  more »

    The price for entrance was very reasonable and the museum is housed in a beautiful building.

    A nice detour from all the shops while visiting Skagway. You can walk the entire museum in about 20 minutes or longer if you spend extra time with any of the exhibits. My son was given an Alaskan flag after completing a scavenger hunt for kids. Worth checking out. Small fee for adults($2)

    For $2.00, it was the right price. Some really cool artifacts about the history of Skagway. There do seem to just be some random "old" things that aren't really connected to Skagway scattered throughout the exhibits.

    Historically this is an AWESOME little Museum. Love the Bear and the goat, sooooo much history in such an easy place to visit. They are so full of information at the desk, visit before you take the White Pass RR trip, will mean sooo much more! Thank you City Of Skagway, we love coming here! A must to do in Skagway

    As the complete street is known in less than 2 hours, I recommend that you enter the Museum and see the tools that were used in those times. You do it in less than 20 minutes
