Visited for a few hours when I was in Whitehorse. I loved the section with the animals, it was awesome! because you can see the actual size of them (really close, not like in the animal preserve, which is also very cool). Small museum, not crowded with lots of historical stuff (common things for every day use)

The MacBride Museum is well placed in the centre of Whitehorse near the banks of the Yukon River. The museum tells the story of the history or Whitehorse through many permanent and special exhibits, including a 1898 miner's saloon. Admission is $10 which is very good value to get an understanding of the social history of the Yukon.

This museum is currently expanding and undergoing renovations but what is available for viewing is very informative. You'll find a good display of the wildlife of the area as well as the history of the city and the building of the Alaskan Highway.

This museum has great exhibits for a $10 entry fee. Actual gold fragments. Impressive display on northern animals including 8 foot high grizzly, wolves and polar bears. Had to admire the feather parkas and the beaded mukluks. Impressive work.

Beautiful gallery of art out front. Not exactly the most modern or eye-catching of museums, but lots & lots of genuine artefacts.
