I was amazed to learn about what animals that roamed through the Yukon in prehistoric times. The legend of the giant beaver was an eye stopper.

If you're a natural history buff like I am, don't miss this specialized museum on Beringia, the ice-free area of the Yukon and Alaska during the last ice age. The museum contains a nearly complete mammoth skeleton, a Short-Faced bear skeleton and the permafrost preserved skin of an extinct horse. The interior is well laid out with excellent signage describing... More

The exhibits were superb, the artifacts excellent and the movie was so educational! I can't believe how much new stuff I learned, even though I'm a Senior citizen!

If you're looking for a museum where you'll find much about many topics, forget it. This one is all about Beringia, geography, climate, animals, you name it. So you get out of it with a clear view of what it was and a good chance to remember the essential part of it. Very well presented on top of this and... More

Most of the material on display was of casts or reconstructions rather than original material – disappointingly, for a region with such a rich fossil record. But the information available was informative and interesting, even if couched in a little too much "some scientists say".

I knew about the mythical land bridge between Asia and North America but I didn't know much of the details about it or that its name was Beringia. I do know and the detail that this museum goes into is fantastic. Its small but packed with information, creative displays and movies. Do the walk around the centre to see large... More

One of our favourite things to do in Whitehorse. Our guide was so good - very knowledgeable, entertaining and gave great insight to the natural history of the region. Location is easy to get to and you can visit the Transportation Museum next door as well.

We went to the Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre, which is located right beside the airport. Outside the building, there was a family of mammoths and a giant beaver. We bought a double pass for this museum and the transportation museum for $12 (regular price at Beringia is $6 and transportation museum is $10, so saved $4). As soon as we... More

Located very close to the airport. Admission price is very reasonable and can be combined with admission to transportation museum for a small discount. They have just set up a reciprocal deal with other museums so we were able to go in free thanks to our Royal Ontario Museum Membership. The place is devoted to a very limited time period... More
