A place where your imagination will get a work out. The history and beauty is spectacular with it's large selection of prehistoric animals and people. Just a wonderful place to take the whold family to learn something different about the land of the Yukon.

I loved the story of the crow making the world Mirth sumarch master carver has provided some beautiful pieces displayed between the prehistoric remains. Story of the lost land bridge come to life bringing the tlingit people, the first of the people of Canada

A nice, small museum with interesting exhibits and multi-media. Worth a quick visit. You may as well take the package deal they offer with the Yukon Transportation Museum, which is practically next door.

Stopped here on a rainy afternoon and were not disappointed. There is lots to read and look at and there were two films playing in the afternoon that we watched. Learned a lot about the Yukon during the ice age and the various animals that once lived there. Great way to spend a rainy afternoon in Whitehorse!

Don't miss the BBC production, Land of the Mammoth. It's so beautifully done and interesting. We visited with two pre-teen boys and they enjoyed all the exhibits. We spent a good hour there.

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
