If you're interested in the Ice Age or natural history, this small interpretive centre will be worth the $6 admission fee. It's good to support educational exhibits such as this whenever possible. Outside you will find some life sized mammoth models and inside you will find articulated fossil displays of a mammoth, short faced cave bear, giant ground sloth and... More

I'm a sucker for natural history...growing up within a stones throw of the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller, however, has probably spoiled me for places like the Beringia Centre. I mean absolutely no disrespect to the people who invest their time and energy and money to the centre and fully understand the limitations of working within one's budget. What IS... More

This is an excellent series of displays on the creation of a land bridge from Asia to North America, along with the history of the animals that crossed the bridge (both east to west and west to east) and the arrival of human inhabitants into the Americas. I strongly recommend that you go. There is a combination ticket for the... More

Learned a great deal and saw artifacts I was unaware of. It is a must see and fun learning to hunt like our ancient native ancestors.

This was a fabulous interpretive center on the Beringia land mass between Siberia and Alaska/Yukon. Learned so much. Tracy who provided our introduction was outstanding. She was knowledgeable as well as passionate about this period of time. Great presentation. There were also two well done film clips. The first an introduction was 17 minutes. The second a BBC 35 minute... More

Before our flight out of Whitehorse we walked over to the Interpretive Center. My son loved the 'hunt' for the mammoth! Great layout and displays. The theatre was wonderful as well. So glad we went!

One of the best tourist attractions, particularly for those with an interest in pre-historic times. A great way to learn about the Bering Land bridge, and how much of Yukon, Alaska, and Siberia were unglaciated when most or the rest of the continent was frozen for thousands of years under massive amounts of ice. It's a short walk from the... More
