Well I was there outside the summer tourist hours so it was closed, but still a great place to walk around in the snow and enjoy the old cabins. How on earth that boat got there, I’d love to know, because that river couldn’t fit...More

We went there in November, the museum in the park was closed. However, we did walk in the surrounding area and actually had fun playing in the snow, there was really nothing else to do.

There are two playgrounds, one for older kids and one for younger kids, some shops that sell touristy Alaskan trinkets, some food places to stop and get a bite to eat, it's a unique little place.

This park was closed when I came but you’re still able to walk around and check out the buildings. It gives you a feel for older Alaska and though I wasn’t sure what to expect, I’m glad I came!

Free park size area full of history, log cabins, old paddle ship etc. Locals use it as a picnic area for kids so it was a lovely few hours watching kids enjoying parties and wandering around the exhibits.
