Loved to visit the museum! Well done and learned a lot about the gold rush mining. Sad to see how Natives lost their lands ans identity caused by the white people coming for gold digging.

Even though the museum is currently under construction it was very informative about Yukon's history including the Gold Rush and we enjoyed the animal exhibit.

The museum has been going through a huge renovation but is very much worth a visit. It capture the essence of the Yukon. Good for the whole family. If you are a visitor, take this in. Good for the whole family.
