Great museum to visit. A little pricey but oh well right! Worth the visit. Love the updates, glad to see it finally expanding. Disappointed they got rid of the hockey history in the Yukon exhibit. Still worth the visit

Music nights are real treats; local musicians entertain and the museum is open late for viewing as well.

Provided information of the history of the area as well as mounted animals and their place in the ecosystem. Was respectful of ancient cultures as well as more modern history

I very much enjoyed my visit to this museum but parts of it were closed for renovation. I loved the Sam McGee house, as I never knew that this was a real person (though obviously the events in the poem were not). Very well done

if you want to learn about the building of the Alaska highway this museum has a great exhibit downstairs. A nice exhibit of yukon animals and Robert Services cabin are neat too.

This museum offered a great overview of the development of this area and describes how white horse got its name. We especially enjoyed the area that has representations of all the animals that you will find in this area. They were all named so you...More
