The Kluane Museum is well worth the stop. It offers excellent and informative displays of both wildlife and First Nation history. Also, the gift shop carries exquisite moccasins, mittens, hats, and other items made by the local population.

A very good Museum, with lots of animal exhibits. A good Photo-Op, outside at the large gold pan. We saw a Moose about 3 miles from Museum. Also I got my Yukon Passport stamped here.

Such a cool little place! Nice vibes with animal noises in the background, videos playing, and all the animals you would expect to see in Yukon and more! Has exhibits of animals, aboriginal life and rocks and minerals found in the Yukon mines.
