There was a power outage the day we visited, but we did get to see the world's largest weather vane, so I wouldn't call this a disaster for us.

Very interesting, with bomb parts, old trucks and Fluffy! The exhibit is both indoor and outdoor. Even a locomotive and steamboat.

If you go to the Beringia Museum first and buy a combo ticket you get in cheaper. The Transportation Museum have some great info but is not as good as the Beringia Museum. There are some Klondike information, some old vehicles and planes. There are some great old pictures. A fair amount of information on the construction of the Alaska... More

This is a small museum with some cool examples of the various types of transportation used thru the history of the area. I didn't think it was worth the $10 admission ... but if you want to see this AND the Beringia museum next door you can get a special 2-for-1 deal ... make sure to ask.

It had the only weather vane that is a DC3 plane on a pivot and need only 5 mile an hour wind to move it....or how about the huge US Army truck with balloon style tires that went over everything. It was a monster of a truck...tire was wider than 2 men. SO many old vehicles, trains, sleds, aircraft..truly a... More

Just felt there was not enough to make it worth the time+admission price. Still, some interesting parts.

Everything from sled dogs to airplanes -- don't miss it! The gift shop is a treasure -- if you want a battered old Yukon license plate as a souvenir of your trip, here's the place to buy one.

We spent over 3 hours touring this museum. It should be better advertised, we almost missed going there. What a great lesson in Canadian history!

We visited the museum just before getting our plane back to Frankfurt. It is a very (surprisingly) large museum on very different transportation objects, related to the Gold Rush but not only. It also has some planes, some War machines and a nice little part related to the Sled Dogs. I really advice to go to the airport one hour... More
