Do not miss this centre if you are visiting Whitehorse. After a multiple visits to Whitehorse, we finally took the time to visit the centre and am really sorry we did not visit earlier! The information in the centre is phenomenal as well as all of the displays. !

What could be better than a wooly mammoth
Aug 2019
The wooly mammoth family beckons you from the highway and you can see the yellow rib like structure of the center from the road. Don't pass it by. Loaded with displays and exhibits and a film for you to educate yourself on the land bridge. You'll learn how it formed, the climate conditions, how the animals migrated (both ways) and which survived and which didn't. And fossils! Even the walk to the center is interesting with sculptures of ice age animals. Enjoy! We're return visitors. Always something new to learn from the well informed staff. Thanks.

Great pre-airport stop
Nov 2019
It's only open on Sunday/Monday in the winter, which was perfect for our Sunday flight. We dropped our bags at check-in and headed over for a visit at the museum - very interesting displays of information on Beringia, including a great fossil collection and knowledgeable staff to answer questions.

A Must Do

This was an excellently done natural history museum. I would absolutely recommend it and it even has quite a kid friendly section. The displays were well done and informative.

Fascinating & Well Done

Stop and learn about the area through which you will be traveling! The exhibits, movies, and enthusiastic guides help clearly explain Beringia, climate change, extinct animals, and those that have survived by adaptation to a changing world. Definitely a great stop for all ages.

worth a stop and see
Sep 2019
There is so much about the north that amazes me and others that one can take for granted! This is one of those as we don't tend to think about 20,000+ years ago when the ice ages were here and the animals that endured the elements back then. Walking in and interacting with the desk gal, one of the "teachers" who works there, came out and we talked about things especially the giant mammoth in front of us explaining what may have happened with it by showing me a broken toe and later in it's life after it had died, there was knife marks where people had cut it up for food. I walked through the exhibits and learned a bit more about the animals that survived in the area and how they got there and lived. I did not get to see the videos as I arrived too late but, I did enjoy what else they had to show.

Great Museum
Aug 2019
My wife and I really enjoyed this museum. Lots of great information about the past ice ages and the people and animals that inhabited the Yukon. Wonderful displays of a Mammoth and other large mammals of that period. Highly recommended.
