Since I had never been to Whitehorse (or the Yukon) before, I made the MacBride Museum one of my first stops. There are quite a few different exhibits to see and seeing and reading everything could take a couple hours. I was fortunate enough to watch a demonstration of panning for gold. The museum employee was very knowledgeable and answered... More

This museum had so much to showcase and tell about that you could spend a couple of days there easily! There was the animals and the native peoples of the area, as well as a complete history of the gold rush time and early settlement days. Really worth it!

The MacBride Museum is a great place to learn about the history of the Yukon. It includes a great wildlife display, Sam McGee's cabin, history of the gold rush and hundreds of artifacts. Well worth spending a couple of hours while in Whitehorse.

The McBride museum was much bigger and better than I expected it to be. There were so many artifacts that all tell a story...a story of how they lived in the far north so many years ago. I highly recommend everyone visiting Whitehorse check it out.

A nice surprise from the get go! The layout of the museum is different and historical with a true sense of the local wildlife and living conditions of the early settlers.

Many different displays about the gold rush and Yukon in general. Spend a couple hours immersed in our history. Small children will bore quickly as most exhibits are not interactive. Do not skip the basement!

We visited several museums while driving the ALCAN. We enjoyed this museum a lot. We learned a great deal. I highly recommend this place.

The MacBride Museum offers a variety of programs during the season, June to August. We are here in May before everything starts and the site is still worth while to see. Information about gold mining during the gold rush ( a period of only 1 year), the birth and growth of Dawson City, Yukon Mammals and Birds.
