not to be missed. This museum is well worth visiting, it will give you a really great prospective of the yukon's history. Great for all ages. A must visit for tourists and locals who will learn a lot of interesting facts about how the Yukon evolved.

Liked: Organized and thorough. Lots of information that I hadn't seen elsewhere. Very well done exhibits. Disliked: nothing, it's one of the best museums I've seen!

It's Whitehorse style! I think I only pay $10 for the entrance. I like the animals displayed inside the museum. Don't expect too much or compare it with big city museum and you will not get disappointed. But I like it and I think the fee I paid is worth it - at least as a support:) Am glad I... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2015

As first timers to the Yukon, we were impressed by the amount of history the museum captured. The cabin off to the side contained a lot of exhibits from the gold rush era and really gave a feel for what it must have been like back then. The stuffed animals also gave insight into the wildlife present in the North.... More

Lots to learn, well laid out exhibits, really gives you a feeling for the heritage of the place. There is a little bit of everything here, both inside and out, never gets overwhelming, but you could linger a long time if you wanted to!

It seems I'm always saying positive things. Ah, well. We LOVED this museum. Lots to see. Very friendly staff. We were there in the winter, so not everything was open, but still lots to see. Nice little gift shop. (We recommend the playing cards with 52 different photos and factoids, but we bought the last two decks.)

Extremely well organized, well run and very INTERESTING!! Much of the museum is set up as an actual mining town, complete with miners tent, barber shop and saloon. The taxidermy is amazing as well. We spent a very happy two hours in this marvellous museum!

The museum is an easy walk for anyone visiting downtown Whitehorse. Plus it's open year round. It's located in the most historic area of Whitehorse with special free parking for tourists. Its displays and galleries provide a good overview of Whitehorse from the Gold Rush days forward. It was nice to see all the First Nations handiworks - specially the... More

Great place to go and learn about the early gold rush and prospecting and how they lived as well as the local animals (if you can't see them live). Great service
