Loved this museum, too! There was lots to see and the veteran that sits there at one of the sections was very nice, and had quite a bit of personal history.

This was one of the places that I definitely wanted to visit during my long weekend trip to the Yukon. And it never disappointed. Great little museum that pulls a big punch.

An excellent collection of all types of Yukon transportation. More information on the Army and Air Force prescence during the Cold War would have been helpful from a historic context.

We bought a double pass for the Beringia museum and the transportation museum for $12 (regular price at Beringia is $6 and transportation museum is $10, so saved $4). From the Beringia Museum, we went a block down the road to the Transportation Museum (both of these museums are located right beside the airport). We saw trains, planes, and automobiles!... More

Every type of transportation used from the sled that would have been pulled by dogs or horses, to the 1st railway scooters, & a very old caboose, so many types of transportation to list...most really really old.

We saw old planes and learnt about the building of the Alaska Highway. Many old vehicles from cars, buses, and machinery used in the construction of the Alaska Highway.
