Our guided tour takes you through a field of artifacts and on to the dredge itself for a look at how these giant gold mining machines operated.

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. Your guide will give you a tour on this 350-ton pontoon boat where you will see the inner workings of this engineering achievement. 

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.
