Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park Reviews & Ratings
The storytelling aspect of this historical park is very well thought out. The exhibits do a great job of explaining the Gold Rush of Klondike. Worth a visit if you're exploring Pioneer Square. The summer waterfront shuttle has a stop only 1 block away from here.
What a great little museum! The National Parks Services does NOT disappoint with this one. The whole museum flows like one big story from the beginning of the gold rush to its climax and end, following the stories of several people who lived through the experience. I especially liked their inclusion of women's stories, as this made it more relatable to me. The videos were fine and the gift shop was small. But the overall story the museum tells more than makes up for it. Well done, NPS!
This National Historical Park is an absolute gem and the staff are experts on the history of Seattle. Plus, the facilities are well maintained and easy to navigate. We are so lucky to have this FREE park in Pioneer Square and I hope visitors take time to enjoy it...I know that I do!
Great Museum and Free! So informative, never knew Seattle was made famous because of the gold rush. National park museums are always enjoyable to visit.
This place is such a great free spot to explore. They do a great job at highlighting Seattle’s role in the gold rush! They have short films and gold mining demonstrations and the staff was very friendly!
