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.

Good exhibit that pulled together all the various reasons for global warming, explaining how Beringia was formed multiple times. I learned new information about the glaciation of North America, how and why the ice left a gap that allowed for migration from Asia. Fun atlatl demonstration not just for kids.

The man at the desk was so eager to point things out to help get us started. He offered a scavenger hunt game to our daughter which made her take notice of items she may have missed. He also took us outside, with other guests, to let us try to throw a spear using an atlati - his enthusiasm was... More
