lots of ice age artifacts and history. spend as little or as much time as you like but it is a must see. The giant mammoth remains are worth a visit alone. The movie gives good insight as to how this area was spared from the last ice age. Interesting

The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. They really make the place because many of the exhibits are quite outdated - some are great though! Favourite part is the Giant Sloth.

Worth while stop on the way into or out of Whitehorse. In fact, if the day is nice, it is Worth hiking up the cliff from downtown Whitehorse and bringing a picnic.
