Where are we going today?
With the Klondike Gold Fields, the whole family can experience this amazing part of the country! Kids can immerse themselves in, and learn all about, the fascinating history of the Klondike Gold Rush.
Transport yourselves back to the 1890s, at a time when everyone wanted to strike it rich (and some really did!) You will be welcome by the very fun costumed staff, who will entertain you during your entire experience at the Klondike Gold Fields.
The site has everything you would want to experience in relation to this amazing period in US history. You can meet the dog team and watch them demonstrate the very awesome sled run. You can even interact with the dogs and hold the puppies - make sure you have your camera for that one!
Brrrr...it's getting chilly! Especially when you visit the 40 Below Experience...just layer up and enter the very COLD chamber. There is even an ice throne - pretty awesome!
You can also tour the Gold Dredge and all it's inner workings - great for those kids who love machines and the fun "how does that work" experiments the might like to do! And if you want to strike it rich too, then you can try your hand at gold panning. Kids will love the warm-water troughs, especially when they find out that gold is guarenteed!
You can spend some time strolling the historic displays in the grounds, or just relax and enjoy the surroundings. It is Alaska after all!
It’s history made fun at the Klondike Gold Fields!
