We spent part of a day at the museum because it was cold and raining and we were on vacation with our two kids and friends with their two kids. The museum is well designed and very informative. In retrospect, I would have gone even on a sunny warm day. None of us knew much about Beringia before visiting the... More

I am so happy that I made the time to go to this. I was a bit rushed as I had to be elsewhere afterwards, however, it was still great and I learned a lot. Corin was especially helpful and knowledgeable; she can tell you numerous things on the Beringia and is truly interested in all that she says. I... More

I did a self guided tour of the museum, the short documentary of the area was well done and it was a nice tour. Only thing lacking was a gift shop-I would loved to have purchased a little Wooly Mammoth as a souvenir. Good parking, easy to find and then take a walk to the transportation museum next door. The...

Probably a lot of fun for little kids. I practically grew up inside Victoria's Provincial Museum in the 70's and 80's so this was a very small facility.

Take a tour with one of the guides. They are very knowledgeable and the displays are very cool. They have a lot packed into a small space.

The Beringia Centre is easy to find - just off the Alaska Hwy near the south end of the airport. Parking is easy with a path through the trees to its entrance. The building is modern and sophisticated. The Centre provides an insight into the wild-life and land formations when there was no Bering Sea separating Russia from Alaska. The... More

nb Closed from end of September until Victoria Day weekend. The Beringia Centre explains the geography and animal-life of the ice-age subcontinent that connected present day Russia to North America. The displays are very professionally laid out, with some interactive and multi-media displays that would especially appeal to children. Very informative and professionally done films are presented throughout the day... More

What a fine way to while away a couple of hours learning about some of the little known history of our country. I'd never heard of Beringia before and was surprised to learn about this area where the last ice age never penetrated. Such a wealth and diversity of wildlife represented by amazing dioramas, interactive displays and, of course, the... More

From the moment we walked in the door we were very impressed with the friendly staff. We did a tour right away that was very informative. The excitement from our guide was infectious and she really knew her stuff. There were some great displays with lots of great information. There were interactive things for the kids to do which was... More

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
