It is $9 for seniors. There is a large display of stuffed animals from the area from the little muscrat to the large moose, a room for the miners and lots of things from that era. Outside you can see the Sam McGee’s cabin furnished.

Great museum which is undergoing renovations at the moment. Our guide was a Dawson native so she knew Yukon history. I recommend visiting this museum

This was an excellent museum. We learned so much about Canada, the Yukon, the history of the Allan highway, as well as the animals of the area. We were intrigued for over an hour.
