  • This center is a great historical learning center of prehistoric mammals and how they are discovered. I recommend this for any tourist or local to see at least once. 
  • Weren't too many visitors on the day I went, so got an excellent personal tour by one of the staff. Some interesting videos that put everything into context as well. 
  • Was interesting, saw a short film was very educational wish they had more to show as far as exhibits, understand it may not be busy as it is a small town but was a nice quick visit.

  • The Berengia museum was the highlight of our trip to Whitehorse. Friendly and knowledgeable staff offer guided tours, with hands on interaction. Videos play throughout the day at their theater to expand your knowledgeable of Berengia. Did you know camels were native to the Americas!?
  • Kinda small but very informative when it comes to ice age animals. Could use some updating (the video I watched was 30 years old).
  • Very interactive and knowledgeable. Good resource towards learning about ancient northern culture
  • Pretty cool. Lots of skeletons of ice age era animals, including a mammoth
  • Fantastic museum about a not-frequently mentioned period of time.
