The Dawson City Museum is the place to begin your exploration of Dawson and the Klondike Gold Rush. Discover Yukon's First Peoples and explorers. Experience the gold rush through the stampeders, the entrepreneurs, and the demimonde. A variety of programs are available for our visitors. Experience the law prior to the arrival of the North-West Mounted Police. Discover for yourself what it takes to be a Stampeder. Try your hand at the rockerbox and prepare to be amazed at the gold pouring demonstration.
The browser and serious researcher alike will enjoy pouring over the materials in the Museum’s Klondike History Library. Does your family lore have a relative who participated in the Stampede of ’98? Did they perhaps climb the Chilkoot? Let us help you find out.
