Bought most of my Canadian souvenirs in the gallery. There is a great selection of prints, jewellery, ceramics and other pieces. Staff were friendly and packed all our gifts for safe travelling. We also got great restaurant advice from the manger/owner. Would highly recommend this gallery

I attended a special event here. I was in awe at all of the amazing photos and items on display. I would recommend anyone to go look. It's very unique.

This is an important stop to learn about Yukon and Canadian history. The exhibits are fascinating and educational. You'll see some early snowmobiles and a snow groomer.

If you want to know how the Yukon and the Arctic develop their economics and by what kind of transportation was used to build the YUKON as it is, this is a good one to visit. Cheap to get in and right on Alaska HWY, Wheelchair access, good display. Also there is a lot of selection of video about local... More

We loved it. Spent a lot of time talking to the guides and looking at the history. There was everything there including old planes, vehicles of all sorts, and so much information. Found the old hospital where I was born and a picture of the airbase I lived on. The old planes and their stories were very interesting. We had... More

While I thought this wouldn't be my cup of tea, I found myself more and more enthralled as we continued through the museum. The displays were excellent, low key but very informative and evocative of the earlier days of the Yukon. I would highly recommend a visit. Nice job, folks!

The museum is well set up with several "rooms" and a lot of information. We bought a combination ticket with the Beringia museum. However, the hours were not the same and we had to come back twice to get in. I enjoyed the Beringia center more so if you have only limited time I recommend it over this one. They... More

This is one of the best attractions in Whitehorse. Really very interesting, because transportation in the North, was made possible by dogsleds, riverboats and bush planes. It was especially interesting to see how some 30,000 prospectors made it up to Dawson City, through the mountain pass before there were any roads. Many simply could not make it, as the mounted...
