  • This museum is really interesting. There is so much history and so many amazing people that have contributed toward the development of the Yukon and you can see how they did it and the machines they used. I liked the big road train outside, it must have been amazing to see it operating back in the day. The displays are well done and the machines are well restored, a credit to the museum. I would like to see it again one day. Souvenirs for sale there.
  • We visited but closed, took some pictures..the CP Airline weathervane was interesting..various old machinery
  • The is a wonderful museum. Truly a journey through time. The staff are incredible. There was one staffer named Janna who showed me around and was full of fascinating info on each piece in the museum. If you like all things motorized this is the place to be. I was like a kid in a candy store.
  • Interesting photo gallery and very good recreation o historic models.
  • No notice on their site or to anyone at the Visitor's Center that they were closed for a special event the only day a week that they are supposed to be open. We drove over 2000 miles to see this, but now will never get to see it.

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.
