The Dawson City Museum is housed in the beautiful Old Territorial Administration Building National Historic Site, one of the premier heritage attractions in the Yukon. The exhibits provide an in-depth look at Dawson’s social and mining history, the Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in People, pre-gold rush history, the colourful Gold Rush era, and the natural history of the Klondike. Three Klondike Mines Railway locomotives, including one of the oldest preserved examples in Canada, are housed in the museum's train shelter.
The Museum presents temporary exhibits, audiovisual programs and a variety of interactive and theatrical programs that bring the stories and gold rush era to life. Special events are scheduled throughout the summer. Genealogy and historical research can also be done in the Klondike History Library. A gift shop featuring local artisans is also available.
