AAA Editor Notes

Dawson Historical Complex National Historic Site comprises more than a dozen restored buildings scattered throughout Dawson City. The structures evoke the time and place of the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s. Visitors may explore the richly appointed Palace Grand Theatre where the interactive presentation, Greatest Klondiker Contest, is offered Sunday through Thursday; the Commissioner's Residence mansion and gardens where themed talks take place along with such activities as flower-pressing and croquet; the Robert Service Cabin, where the Bard of the Yukon lived and wrote many of his ballads and poems 1909-12; and Harrington's Store, which displays photographs and letters from the gold rush. Self-guiding audio tours and guided tours led by costumed site interpreters are available. A hike with the Poetry of Robert Service is offered daily. Tour tickets are available at the visitor information center.
All programs $6.30 each; free (children).
