This museum offers a rather eclectic collection for viewing. There are displays of traditional indigenous artwork, contemporary artwork, recreation of gold rush era saloon and store front, and an exhibit on the building of the Alasan highway. Definitely worth the price of admission.

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.
