Beringia is an ancient sub continent created by the last Ice Age. Because the area was protected by mountain ranges, it was not glaciated. The museum has skeletal remains and exhibits of the people and animals that lived there during the Ice Age.

I spent a couple of days here exploring the exhibits (visited twice in a few months). The exhibits were interesting, but it was the interpretation tours that made the experience excellent. I took a general tour as well as watched a movie which had interpretation afterwards - the guides were very helpful in answering questions (it was clear they had... More

We love the place and we go there every year as it the "bones" section is very impressive. The family section is quite interesting with furs and pelt to identify (in both French and English), the movies are interesting (should be bilingual, thought as french scientists are interviewed in English...). The computer games are dated and kids loose interest real... More

It is a great museum for kids and adults. Interactive games for kids and films in short and longer versions. I've learned about the glaciation, the animals that once lived in the area and how people lived as well.

I went here with a girlfriend and her 2 kids (8,5) and my daughter (12). The museum is smaller than it looks from the road. It has fun animal sculptures scattered throughout the path from the parking to the museum where we got some goofy pictures. The museum has a nice movie gallery which was showing a Hollywood movie about... More

Spent a few very enjoyable hours exploring the world of Beringia. I was totally ignorant of the history and geology of this part of the world so found it fascinating. First up close look at a Wooly Mammoth and it is quite the size. Well worth visiting.

The staff is very attentive in this small, yet highly informative, beautiful, and well organized museum. They even gave my son some books because he showed such interest in the subject matter. We participated in the hands-on demonstrations outside. Both kids and adults will enjoy a visit to this museum.

Very interesting displays of the land that used to connect northern Asia and North America... The animals that wandered the area, and the progress of the land changes.

The Beringia Centre if a fantastic experience for all ages. You will be amazed at the information about the replicas of the animals that you will see. You will also hear some of the Native stories and see how they lived during Beringia. The facility is wonderful and make sure you read the stories of the animals that lived and... More

Wow, what a great little museum! Dealing mainly with the (very) large warm-blooded animals that used to live hereabouts, the excellent interpretive displays really give a sense of what Beringia used to be. Some nice early human info, and hands-on sessions for the kids. For a science nerd, it was magic.
