This is one of the best attractions in Whitehorse. Really very interesting, because transportation in the North, was made possible by dogsleds, riverboats and bush planes. It was especially interesting to see how some 30,000 prospectors made it up to Dawson City, through the mountain pass before there were any roads. Many simply could not make it, as the mounted...

If you enjoy a little history then you'll love this place. Also there is a senior man that told us he had been with this place for 25 years and he had a lot of great stories to tell. Admission was by donation on the day we attended and it was a great way to spend a rainy cold day... More

The museum had great historical information and gave a real sense of how integral transportation was to the history of the Yukon. My grandfather was the first pilot to bring airplanes to the Yukon and was very exciting to see his history as part of the exhibits.

This was an interesting museum to visit, especially when one considers how difficult it can be to get around the Yukon and how hard it used to be before roads and airports. The museum has a ticket deal with the Beringia Museum right next store, so you may as well visit both. You can spend 30 minutes here, or take... More

Transportation played a huge role in the development of the Yukon, starting with the dogs, sleds, canoes, and snow shoes of the First Nation people. More recent developments of the railroad, airplane, Ski-Doo, automobile, coupled with the building of the Alaska Highway all played import roles. This museum is wonderful, with exhibits and explanations of all of these developments. I... More

This museum is a two minute walk from the Whitehorse Airport and has some eye catching outdoor displays to draw you in. We unfortunately only gave ourselves 45 minutes before our flight to "do" the museum so could only see part of what was on offer. To really see it all you should probably have at least 90 minutes and... More

The Yukon Transportation Museum is a great experience close to the airport. Lots of photos and artifacts from the "old days". Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.
