This private museum is free, and it gives the best overview of local history in Skagway. A visit only take 15 to 25 minutes, and there is no pressure to buy anything from the store.

Loved our time spent here... Well worth the visit. Wished we could have stayed longer, but wanted to take in the whole town. But we look forward to returning soon to finish the walk down memory lane.

This neat and organized museum was jam-packed with lots of artifacts and photographs from the local culture. It was free, and definitely a must-see part of the Skagway experience.
