  • This visitor center is very close to Skagway Centennial Statue. The center can help you understand more about the gold rush era from the presentations by the rangers and an informative movie. For me.....  more »
  • Traversed much of the trail and park via rail and the experience was spectacular. How the miners ever endured the tedious and dangerous trek over the Chilkoot trail is a story of unbridled courage...  more »
  • Friendly informative staff. Interesting things to read throughout. Ladies bathroom had a lengthy line, smelled of urine and were tight corridors. There are four stalls though and in an emergency it served its purpose.
  • Any time you can visit a NPS facility, you should. This one is no exception. Excellent and best thing I've seen of the Klondike gold rush
