Cost to see this marvelous exhibit was $5.00 each. The informative 15 minute movie about the Beringia Plains, the former land between Siberia and Alaska was excellent. The animals who formally lived on these plains some 20,000 years ago are shown and are worth the trip to see. We were treated to an interactive attempt to throw the long darts... More

A must visit to learn the natural history of the area. We attended an evening event in spacious and comfortable theatre.

This is a great place so far away from it all. Staff is very informative, and the museum is next to a lot of interesting places. The airplane wind vane is one of them. You need to see this at least once.

The Beringia Interpretive Centre was a worthwhile stop on our trip. I wouldn't bother setting aside much more than an hour for it, though. While it was informative, it was small and basic. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

This is a tiny visitor's centre, but very informative with some rather amazing articles in tow. I enjoyed learning a lot more about a prehistoric time in my beautiful country and viewing the 'Yukon's claim to fame' (you'll have to go there to find out what it is!) I'd say if you've got an hour or two to spare, have... More

This exhibit is a well designed journey back in time and it covers so many different topics that you could spend 2-3 hours here easily. The films that were shown were captivating and extremely informative. The staff were friendly and helpful and the information provided was done so in a way that you could scratch the surface by glancing over... More

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
