“Lovely historic paddle-wheeler”

S.S. Keno National Historic Site
Ranked #11 of 34 things to do in Dawson City
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 October 2013

This vessel has been wonderfully preserved and has excellent, informative displays as you walk through the boat at your own pace. We also watched an excellent, informative (also!) film about the history of the sternwheelers on the Yukon. The guides were helpful, showing us what to see and starting the documentary for us.
We visited as part of a combination ticket for muliple sites purchased from Parks Canada -- that multi pass was well worth its cost for those staying in Dawson City more than a day.

We had an excellent time taking this self guide tour on this boat. Life had to be pretty tuff back then. There was no cost to this tour as we were told it was going to cost $10.00 each at our resort. Take it, you won't be sorry.

You must take the tour of this historic stern wheeler located on the water front in the middle of town.

We had a good time looking through the boat and got to watch a 30 minute documentary made in 1960 about this last stern wheeler to make the trip north (down river) on the Yukon River. It's final resting place is Dawson City. Its sister ship is in Whitehorse, YT. The hosts were very helpful and having been on the stern wheeler at Disneyland, it is cool to see all the machinery and the staterooms and the galley too. So cool.
