“Great architecture”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

The centre has a great setting on the Yukon River and great meeting room and artifacts. Now that summer is here and the trolley is running, it would be even more attractive.

“Beautiful venue.”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Recently held an event here and it was a huge success. Beautiful venue on the river. Everything is so well laid out and presented. The rooms, the art work and working with the staff is great. A beautiful place with first nation history not to be missed on a visit to Whitehorse. Attached to Whitehorse Library.

“What a marvellous place”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

The Kwanlin Dun community is in the midst of a remarkable revival. This is their flagship initiative, beautifully situated on the banks for the Yukon River. The building is terrific -- a statement of confidence and optimism about the future.
