This national park is really a free museum that documents Seattle history, from the fire that burned it down to the gold rush that helped build it up.

We popped into the museum after taking a free walking tour of Seattle when the museum was mentioned. The exhibits and stories are well worth taking time over - it explained the story of the Klondike well. It's FREE but you can leave a donation...More

Good informative museum - very useful to do before cruising into Alaska (but still worthwhile even if not). Friendly staff. Nicely set out with various displays/photos/artefacts etc. FREE ENTRY ! Would recommend.

Finding a National Park exhibit in downtown Seattle was a plus to our recent visit. And it is free!! The history and all that is shared to help understand the rich history of how the Klondike era enriched and help build Seattle was fascinating.

No. This is a very small place. Your hotel will likely keep your luggage for your even if you can't check in yet

It is inside. It's an old hotel that is now a Gold Rush museum.
