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!

Informative. The staff were very helpful and explained many interesting aspects of the ice age. It is a small museum, but I would recommend it if you are in the area.

It was one of the exhibits that was still open. It was very interesting and informative. Price was right and there was a 30 minute show that was great. We enjoyed it very much

the video is a must watch before you tour the the Centre. It was so interesting to hear about the land bridge, Ice Age and the First Nations people. Highly recommend it to any one.

During the last ice age the seas were dried up a bit and Beringia came into existence ...a land mass that joined North America and Russia without ice....various strange animals existed including the Yukon horse...and most disappeared but a few...like the arctic ground squirrel survived...intriguing history. The Yukon is full of mastodon fossils;bones and ivory tusks...who new?
