So many small places have lost their history. They have saved nothing and if they have saved anything, they have nowhere to display it. I've been to many city museums in Canada, and considering the fragile heritage of the Yukon, the MacBride is amazing! They have the original telegraph office from 1900, a train which was built in 1881, artifacts... More

This is a great site for locals and visitors to visit more then once. Great displays and interesting photos though out. Wild life display is very good and everything is laid out well through out several buildings.

Wonderful museum of Yukon history: First Nations beadwork and art, natural history, gold rush, life in the 1900s, and more. Great little gift shop, too. This is a must-see for visitors to Whitehorse.

Loved the large taxidermy mounts of big-game animals, gold-rush era museum pieces and historic artifacts. Ever seen a coat made from bird pelts? Incredible!

Great overview of the town and area. We liked the animal displays as well as the period/location displays which showed what gold rush life was like. You could probably spend at least 2 hours here is you read all the display information.

Full of interesting displays covering a wide range of topics, including gold mining, dog sledding. I am not usually a museum fan but I fully enjoyed this one.
