Learn about one of the last great prospecting adventures at Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park. The Cadillac Hotel is your first stop on the trail. This site was once the initial supply point for prospectors headed to the Yukon. Explore the temporary exhibits and pick up a map of the original Chilkoot Trail that settlers used to reach the wild lands where they hoped to strike it rich. This is the only international historical park shared by Canada and the United States, as the park extends up to Alaska. The park includes historical settler towns and Dawson City. A visit to Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Seattle trip maker site to plot your vacation.

  • Free admission with a public bathroom. Parking StreetSide was possible for a quick tour. Small store inside too. Silly how they have the middle sink blocked off to force 6feet separation, but the doorway to come and go in/out of the bathroom is about 4 feet wide. The museum was clean and informative
  • Visited - Jan 23,2022 Sunday 11 AM - no entry fee, no crowds. This is a fantastic set of exhibits describing the struggles of the stampeders and the boom around the Klondike Gold Rush leading to a boom in Seattle. I would absolutely recommend a visit when in Seattle! Thoroughly engrossing and detailed explanations of the lives of different characters and more.
