  • Excellent. For a small museum it's big on content, value and customer service. Meisha (our guide) was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. We took advantage of the short guided tour/presentation, the movie in their theatre and the spear throwing demonstration later on. Wonderful place. Worth every cent and more of the entrance fee. Don't expect to be all day here but half a day with taking in all the listed programs and maybe taking a packed lunch to have on the desk, if not then you could be done in 2 - hrs.
  • Great place to learn about Beringia. Theater shows throughout the day. You can get a pass for it and the transportation museum next door. Lots of things for children to do. Takes about 2 hours. A must do if you come to Whitehorse for a visit.
  • This is a very impressive site. I️ learned many things and was amazed at the exhibits, very impressive.
  • This was very cool. Got to learn a lot about the Mamoth and the bridge, Yukon itself etc. Very informative.
  • Wonderful!! Well worth the visit. Parents and kids thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Where to stay in Whitehorse

Accommodations in Whitehorse are spread throughout the city center, easy to navigate on foot or by car. If views of the Yukon River are your top priority, you'll have to pay more to enjoy a prime riverside location in one of the hotels along Front Street. For something more budget-friendly, look for an inn or guesthouse a few streets back from the river. To immerse yourself in the wild nature of the Yukon, look outside the city itself to one of the many ranches and bed and breakfasts dotting the surrounding landscape.
