A wonderful museum telling the history of transportation in the Yukon. The is a one of a kind display in front of the museum that is truly unique. That alone is worth seeing in my opinion. Don't forget to visit the outside area as well to complete your experience.

The Yukon Transportation Museum is a beautiful facility with some truly amazing artifacts. Their collection include the 1920's steamboat Neecheah, a replica of the Queen of the Yukon that was displayed at Expo 86, an early Waco biplane and a Fairchild that are currently undergoing full restoration, a former Canadian Pacific Airlines DC-3 that has been converted into the world's...

Fascinating history. Great old cars, Snow-Train, planes (Queen of the Yukon II), lovely little gift shop. Wheelchair accessible - even the elevated exhibits. Staff were very helpful. Discount if you see the Yukon Beringia Museum and this one together

If you are in the Whitehorse area, why not stop by and visit the museum. $12.00 gives you access to both museums and it will be a very enjoyable and educational afternoon. We went through both at a somewhat fast pace as we had other engagements. However truly enjoyed it and would definitely go back. The staff were awesome and... More

Wow...there were a lot of great things to see and read about in the Yukon Transportation Museum. Our visit took about an hour longer than expected (we didn't want to miss anything). Very well done. Bonus tip: Buy a combo ticket for the museum and the adjacent Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre...you'll save a couple of bucks plus you don't have... More

This museum is located right beside the airport so it was the perfect stop for the morning we left Whitehorse. Transportation in The North has an interesting history. Be sure to read all of the story of the woman and her pilot who survived a plane crash, in winter, for 49 days. A gripping tale, for sure.

We toured the transportation museum inside and out at a joy both parts a lot. My husband loves transportation museums and have seen a lot over Canada. This one rates are very high. The plane that swivels at the front of the museum was well restored and is the no traction by itself. It was closely tied to the Yukon... More

This museum is more widely based than just transportation - the exhibits are displayed in context of the role that given exhibits (planes, boats etc.) played in the development of the Yukon. It is manned by helpful volunteers, some with personal experience related to the exhibits.

This attraction covers all modes of transportation in the north. An especially comprehensive presentation of air travel over time. The story of the 2 survivors of a plane crash in the 1960's is riveting and well done. From dog sleds to bicycles, this is well worth a visit.
