Owner description: Situated on the banks of the Yukon River, the Cultural Centre is a place where we celebrate the heritage and contemporary way of life of the Kwanlin Dun First Nation people. It is also a gathering place for people of all cultures. The vision of the Cultural Centre is to revive, preserve, and demonstrate our language, practices, values and traditional way of life for the benefit of Kwanlin Dun people. We also want to share our culture with other First Nations and people from around the world.

I'd give this a higher rating but the Center has been open only a year and had no exhibits at the time we visited (July 2013). On the other hand, there's no charge, it's an architecturally impressive building, and the video provides a good perspective about the Kwanlin Dun native people.

We had a good tour given by two of the centre's staff. The centre is only about a year old and there are still parts of it that arent' fully open yet (food service area, etc). It is a good place to get information about the First Nation people in the area.

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.

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.

I attended a conference at the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Center and it was amazing. The facility was new, great atmosphere and provided a great cultural experience.
