Unfortunately the museum is being renovated so there didn't seem to be a whole lot to look at, not to mention the bits outside were locked (I am assuming because it was winter?). Probably should offer discounted tickets while half the exhibitions are packed away....More
Comfortable wandering the the exhibits learning of the rich history of this interesting country. The displays were well set up with lots of historic pictures and items showing the expansion of this northern region. The animal exhibits were finished with great detail.
Stopped in here for a visit to get a greater understanding of the Yukon and its history. Luckily it wasn't busy and almost had the place to myself. Learned quite a bit about the territory and its history. Recommend a visit when you're in Whitehorse.
The woman on duty was exceptionally helpful, absolutely made my day. Loads of information and good displays, definitely remember to go up to the 2nd floor and check out the Land and Light Collection - the Ted Harrison Collection was a highlight for me.
The new part of the museum contains stunning blown glass icicles - it's worth the visit just to see the. The museum appears to be trying to link it's older sections with the new and is making good progress. The display of Yukon animals is...More

This was a great place the learn about...More
Visited here 6 years ago and was interested to see the new additions. We spend hours on the first visit reading and taking in the history. The museum seems to be in transition as some of the exhibits we saw before are not yet on...More
Hi there, I'm going to Whitehorse next week (Oct, 19th - 22nd) and I'd like some advises from you guys: 1. Is it already snowing in Whitehorse? I'm worry about which clothes I need to bring... 2. Some attractions will be close in this period, so, which attractions in and around Whitehorse do you recommend me? I read about Emerald Lake, Macbride Museum, Beringia and Yukon Transportation Museum... 3. I read a lot of things about northern lights, but do you (mainly local people)...More

Although we've had many days of snow since the first substantial fall on August 31st, there's no snow remaining on the ground now. There's no deep cold forecast in the near future - just a few degrees below freezing at night. A day trip to Skagway is highly recommended, and that takes you by Emerald Lake. Sorry, I don't know which attractions are still open - stop by the visitor centre downtown to inquire. Renting a car to hunt for clear skies for aurora viewing can be a huge advantage - the...More
