The Beringia was oh my gosh fantastic! It was a great experience, very knowledgeable staff, interactive exhibits and great videos that matched the information given in the centre. They have interpretive trails leading from the parking lot to the centre. It was close to the airport and it shared the same driveway as the museum of transportation.

Incredible place, well set up, great displays and excellent staff. If you go to no other museum in town, this is the one not to miss. Really brings home just how easy it is to get animals and people across the continents. Spent a few hours here and could easily have spent more, but it stopped raining....

This place has great exhibits and movies. A must for anyone wanting to know about the ancient land bridge that helped people and animals populate North America.

Guides and staff extremely knowledgeable and proud of their facility - as they should be. I was so thrilled at what I leaned here . The information about the last ice age in this area enhanced every other activity that I did on my trip to Whitehorse as it gave such an excellent context to the area.

Modern museum, with some artefacts, displays, movie showing and live presentation. Will interest any ages, perhaps even will prevent your teenagers from texting. We did enjoy. On top of that we did receive very worthwhile tip on local lunch place. Go and enjoy.

You can get the 3 bus to here, and combine with the Transportation Museum to make an exceptional visit. Considering this is in the heart of a sparsely populated country, it is an excellent museum. Covering in detail the geology, geography and ecology, it explains in easily understood terms, the creation, evolution, and destruction of the massive area that was... More

I really enjoyed the 30 minute video about Berigina. I learned and alot! This museum is suitable for small groups with varied interests. Take at least an hour to see and enjoy. Guided tours are available.

This was a great little place exploding in history. Great displays inside and out. Loved the short faced bear and of course the mammoth. Not really pricey to enter the facility and your kids will love it.
