If you buy a combination ticket for the Beringia and the Transportation Museum it is a lot cheaper. The Museum is very well done and super informative, great history and geography lesson. In the theater is a 15 min movie that should not be missed. Also ask about a spear throwing demonstration with a Atlatl. Atlatl is and extra stick... More

This was our first stop in Whitehorse. From the mammoths outside to the dinosaur inside, there were interesting things to look at everywhere. My daughter loved the children's interactive area. I enjoyed the infusion of native culture. We watched the film about their research and work with the people of the a Yukon. It is a lovely center and I... More

This was a surprisingly interesting display of the animals of the last ice age. The 35 minute movie was very informative and worth staying for. An amazing learning experience for kids of all ages.

This beautiful attraction has something for everyone. Lots of cool skeletons, great information and the people who work there are very knowledgable about the history and geology. The film is a must-see. Take note ... if you want to see the transportation museum which is right next door, you can get a special deal on admissions for both attractions -... More

Good sort of informations about not-so-well-known part of the continent... submerged land of Beringia... now Bering Strait or Sea of Bering. Pay the visit if you want to be surprised how First Nations or Chinese entered America some 20.000 years ago

Their mammoth skeleton is imported from the United States. Immediately when I learned that, it dropped from the top echelon to a slightly lower rating. But still a very good interpretation of a little known period in the history of the world. They have balanced the aboriginal perspective with the scientific perspective - perhaps too much but it does allow... More

How the heck did this area ever support mammoths, sabertooth tigers and prehistoric horses? The museum quality displays and the short-film theatre are certainly worth the entry fee and explain it very well.

Great place to visit, a must when travelling in the Yukon and interested in geology and natural history. When travelling in winter, call the Museum (mostly closed); if you are a group of min. 5 people, you can arrange a private opening!
