Claim 33 Goldpanning & Jerry Bryde Klondyke Mining Museum is a small family owned and operated business located in the heart of the Klondike gold fields. Helping visitors to find Klondike Gold is our summer fun! You will receive instruction on panning technique, then find your gold. Gold is guaranteed!
Our roots in the Klondike go back to the days of the Gold Rush. We are never happier than when chatting with visitors about anything and everything related to that unique period in the North.
Our yard is a veritable Museum of antique mining equipment and vintage vehicles. We find that visitors are drawn into our parking lot as if by a magnet.
You will find a combination indoor Museum/gift shop where the coffee is always on.
We have a very large selection of northern books, including a small selection in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, and Czech. We are also excited to have recently acquired a collection of Gold Rush era reprints. These are what the stampeders heading north would have read, or those dreaming of taking part. We also have other souvenirs, as well as cold drinks and snacks.
For those looking for something extra special we feature beautiful gold nugget jewelry mined and crafted by artisan families working on nearby creeks. We also offer Mammoth ivory jewelry.
We also offer a popular keepsake for those who pan at Claim 33: we are able to put your gold in lovely gold filled and sterling silver lockets.
Another unique souvenir we offer is bags of “paydirt to go”, small bags of paydirt containing gold. Visitors enjoy taking these home for friends and family. Teachers have frequently purchased them to use in teaching gold panning in their classroom.
