What’s your connection to the Klondike? Explore the rich history of the Klondike at the Dawson City Museum, and find out! Housed in the beautiful Old Territorial Administration Building National Historic Site, the exhibits provide an in-depth look at Dawson’s social and mining history, the Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in People, and the colourful Gold Rush era. Come early in the day and catch our full complement of demonstrations, tours, and films. Included with your ticket is a visit to the Museum’s next-door locomotive shelter, and a tour of four turn-of-the-century steam locomotives.

The Museum presents temporary exhibits, audiovisual programs and a fun mix of interactive and theatrical programs that bring the stories and gold rush era to life. Genealogy and historical research can also be done in the Klondike History Library, assisted by our knowledgeable staff. What connection to the Klondike will you find?
