Whether you are a history lover or want to see more of Alaska's outstanding scenery, the park has something for you. Here are some ideas to consider for your time in here:

If you have half a day, begin your tour at the National Park Visitor Center located in the restored 1898 rail depot at 2nd & Broadway.

  • See the free park film, "Gold Fever: Race to the Klondike." (30 minutes)
  • Attend a ranger chat. Offered daily. Topics vary. Ask for more information at the visitor center.
  • Visit the park museum adjacent to the visitor center and stroll through the restored historic Mascot Saloon.
  • Experience the gold rush at the Junior Ranger Activity Center. Great for families.

If you plan to spend an entire day, there will be time to add in a hike in Skagway or drive to Dyea


With multiple days in Skagway, your options increase.

Note: Passports are required when driving to and from Skagway on the South Klondike Highway and when hiking the Chilkoot Trail.
