Come relive Skagway’s unique history in the Skagway Museum’s collection of artifacts, photographs and historical records. The museum is located in the stunning McCabe College building, which was originally built as a school in 1899. It has since served as a U.S Court House and jail, and now it is the home of City Hall and the Skagway Museum.

The Skagway Museum’s mission is to “enrich community life by collecting, preserving, and interpreting the cultural heritage, arts, and history of the Skagway and Taiya Valleys.”

In 2000, the City of Skagway celebrated its centennial with the completion of a new addition to the 100 year old McCabe College Building.

McCabe College building is at Seventh Avenue and Spring Street.
