Full of interesting displays covering a wide range of topics, including gold mining, dog sledding. I am not usually a museum fan but I fully enjoyed this one.

“Whitehorse Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

A great museum that shows a lot of excellent historical material and history without the boring walk throughs you would expect with a "museum". Favourite part was the second building that walked through time and different eras of such a noble and rich history. If this doesn't suit your fancy, then the excellent staff will ensure you find something to sink your teeth into. Great tour guides and friendly staff makes for more of a personal, yet informative lesson of Whitehorse's pioneering history.

“Something for everyone!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

This is a great little museum, with First Nations history, natural history and exhibits of indigenous animals, mining samples, machinery, and all things Klondike. It is laid out in an interesting and informative way with even an opportunity to try a little "panning" in the summer months. Definitely worth the price of admission, be sure to pick up your "tourist" parking pass first as those pesky meters are annoying.

“Whitehorse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

One of the best museums ever visited. We usually make it a point to visit local museums to learn more about the area visited. So much to see in such a limited space. Absolutely loved the Sam McGee cabin and story.
