Gold Fever

Scores of optimistic gold prospectors stampeded north to Alaska after 1880, seeing the Last Frontier as a place of potential wealth, great adventure and a second chance. Extracting gold from Alaska's rugged terrain amid brutal elements was hard work - and could be deadly for the unprepared. This exhibit tells miners' stories using photographs, artifacts and, of course, gold.
