There are a variety of exhibits, and it is amazing to hear the guide recite "The Cremation of Sam McGee" by heart. The most absorbing exhibit for me was that on the building of the Alcan, which is downstairs.

Great photo OP with costumes and props available as soon as you enter. Stuffed animals in dioramas give a good sense of scale. Cultural and historical displays are well done. 1 to 2 hours is enough for a visit. Close to the visitor information center.

Before we begin, we were told that they were doing some renovations, so the entire third floor and a section of the second floor was, "coming soon." That didn't stop us from going in. When you walk into the MacBride Museum, it is very open,...More

We visited as part of a group tour. The guide was easy to listen to and the displays were great. Particularly loved the animals (even though I abhor animal hunting) as all but one were the result of road kill and they were displayed so...More
