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.

A great place to learn about Yukon's aviation history, the Alaska Highway, the White Pass Railway, northern resource development and challenges with northern transportation. A short walk from both the Erik Nielsen International Airport, and the Beringia Interpretive Centre - an equally intriguing attraction.

The people that created this museum sure knew what they were doing. I enjoyed the information, pictures and stories the most. Everything seemed so well thought out and planned. I love all things old and Canadian and if you fee the same way you cant miss on this unique form of a museum.

My daughter spent over an hour flying from inside the cockpit of a plane, "riding" in a train car, watching a model train breeze down its tracks, saying hello to the sled dogs and marvelling at the pivoting DC 3 out front. We were treated to some great music and in the end she coloured a picture for me. Its... More

This is a small but very fascinating museum that is well laid out, lots of information, incredible pictures from the last century and a blast from the past with various older transportation vehicles used in the Yukon . Loved it.

We just lucked out that although the museum was supposed to be closed they had opened it for a group of seniors. As the lovely Yukon hospitality is they allowed us to come in and join the seniors as they toured through. Our son is in love with all forms of transportation and was really looking forward it.
