Come onboard one of only a few rescued dredges from the famous Gold Rush era!
The history of placer gold mining in the Yukon is not complete without seeing a dredge that continued to operate until the late 1950s. Each part of the dredge is clearly elucidated, and you will leave understanding just what a simple yet clever engineering feat it was to use them.
In addition, there are many pictures of the history of this time period as well as a film about how the dredge came to sit here in Dredge Town. This tour is included in your ticket to Dredge Town. There is also a guided visit offered on some cruise line tours.
Walk down the time tunnel transporting you back to 1898!
