Arguably the smallest National Park in the USA, the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park is situated within an ancient, well preserved, critically important (back in that era) building. It is essentially a museum documenting the Gold Rush that took place the 1800s.

This is an interesting place to spend an hour or three in Seattle and the price was right — free! It was interesting to watch the film about the gold rush and the two floors of exhibits were well done. I loved the way it allowed me to choose and learn about a particular person as I went through. The gift shop was small and nice.
Saw postings about this place online and was interested that the museum was free. The location was easy to find and had a lot of cool tourist attractions surrounding it. I wish that they could play the Introduction video at the very start of each self-guided tour, because it would have been very helpful. Unfortunately, when I arrived, the video wasn’t playing for another half hour, so I decided to walk around on my own. The information is interesting; however, the layout of the building and the order of information is confusing. I was never sure which way I was supposed to go and if I was reading the right signs. The other thing is that there is SO MUCH TEXT. I wish there were more variety in how the information was presented, like more videos or audio recordings. Definitely worth a visit (mostly because it’s free), but WATCH THE VIDEO FIRST.
Super interesting local history museum. Totally free and easy to get to if you're local (and not too far away if you're not). Has two levels and can be gone through in about an hour. And yes, it IS a national park. Cross it off your list.
Great place to spend 45 minutes to an hour. The gold Rush had a huge impact on Seattle's early development. Nice displays. Great place to get out of the rain for a few minutes and learn something new. Also, I highly recommend the walking tour of Pioneer Square.
This is a great museum and it costs you nothing. It is the best and largest free museum I have been too. There is lots about the gold rush here. The staff is very nice and they also have free tours. There are lots of cool artifacts and things here that show lots about the gold rush, like gold sifting tools and other tools. I really recommend it you should come here for a free fun afternoon.
