Travel back to 1898 on the Going for the Gold: Panning and Dredge Tour! Experience the life of a prospector as you learn about the Yukon and Skagway Gold Rush, pan for gold, and explore an incredible dredge that operated until the late 1950s. Your guides, dressed in character, show you what it was really like for the prospectors of the Gold Rush through a fun show with historical footage and mining antiques. Then, it’s your turn to try your hand at gold panning in the covered warm-water troughs. You’re guaranteed to find gold in every pan! Once you’ve collected your pay dirt, have it weighed in the Assayers’ Office that’s full of unique collections of gold nuggets and artifacts. Stroll the grounds that are filled with interactive displays and enjoy views of the Harding Glacier and Skagway River. The family-friendly Going for the Gold: Panning and Dredge Tour offers excitement for guests of every age!
