  • 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).
