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.

S.S. Klondike National Historic Site

The British Yukon Navigation (BYN) Company sternwheeler fleet plied the upper Yukon River between Whitehorse and Dawson City in the early twentieth century. The S.S. Klondike was the largest sternwheeler in the fleet. Built in 1929, the ship sank in 1936, was rebuilt and launched as the S.S. Klondike II in spring 1937.

Located on the banks of the Yukon River in Whitehorse, Yukon, and restored to its original 1937-40 appearance, the S.S. Klondike pays tribute to an era of riverboat transportation and the inland water transportation system that linked the Yukon to the outside world before the advent of roads. Explore the boat using the self-guided tour brochure, the Explora app, or the Xplorer kid's booklet. See if you can find the Geocache. Open from the May long weekend till the September long weekend. Bonjour! For more information, call 867-667-3910 / 1-800-661-0486, www.parkscanada.gc.ca/ssklondike.

Binet House Museum

The Binet House Museum is located in a restored 1920's heritage building at 304 Second Avenue. This house was built for Gene Binet, one of Mayo's Forefathers, and his bride Jewel. Gene Binet retired and left with his family for California in the fall of 1938 after he had sold his residence, hotel and store. The Binet House was occupied by several Mayo families over the years and in 1990, after it had been vacant for some time, the building was purchased by the Village of Mayo and turned into a Museum/Interpretive Centre. A small Annex was built on the property to house the gift shop and additional displays.

The Binet House features interpretive displays, a gift shop and tourist information. It is open from late May to mid September, 10 am to 6 pm daily.

Guests can view displays about permafrost, geology and gold and silver mining in the Mayo district. There are displays of historical photos, artifacts, and exhibits about Mayo residents and the First Nation of Na-Cho Nyak Dun. The Binet House also houses a large collection of medical artifacts and a display of locally made arts and crafts.
