A Must Do In Whitehorse!
Nov. 2020 • Couples
Wow! I don’t know where to start, this museum is exceptional and covers the full gambit of transportation methods and history in the Yukon. The stories it tells bring what it was like in days gone by in the Yukon to life. If you are in town this is something you should have on your list. A special thank you to Nicole for making our visit so very special by sharing her knowledge of the museum and it’s artifacts.

Has any one ever herd of andy hooper well we have and we seen his beloved truck he only drove u til his death in 1991 . The locals use to bet mad at him as his truck could only go 25 mph on the roads. Ut that did not stop him . He could not join the army but the army allowed him to use the truck for deliveries etc . It was donated here and now is being restored and at stabilized. . They also have older buses, planes and cars of olden days gone by , lots of artifacts etc inside and out .

What a collection of all manner of transportation in the North
Aug. 2019
We've been driving the Alaska Highway to the Yukon for over 20 years and decided to do the museums in Whitehorse. This museum is great. What a huge collection of transportation in the Yukon. We learned so much--about bush pilots, hiking up the Chilcoot Trail during the Gold Rush, and about the building of the Alaska Highway. All methods of transportation--dog sled to planes including the Queen of the Yukon, river boats, trains, and trucks to vehicles special to the North's snow with big tires or treads. I liked the Main Street recreation. Did I mention my photo of my husband, a farm boy from PA, standing beside an old tractor? We spent a lot of time here and probably didn't see everything.

Not to be..

Really wanted to visit this museum whilst in Whitehorse.
Went Sat and it was closed due to an event (nothing to indicate on the website). Went Sun and the woman at the counter tried to process a payment but said their machine was down.

We indicated that it was a pre-departure stop as the airport was right next door

She just mentioned it was cash only. Given in general that people don't often carry cash, there wasn't an atm nearby and you can't purchase tickets online. She just suggested that we buy a Beringia combo ticket next door.
A reasonable person would probably suggest we look around regardless for 45min and we would go away thinking that the service was exceptional. Unfortunately not!

Interesting, but could use more text
Nov. 2019
A great collection on the history of transportation through this rugged landscape. I could've used more descriptions on the displays, as I wasn't sure what I was looking at half the time in the hangar and especially outside, where there was no labels or signage on any of the artifacts displayed, so while neat looking, I had no idea why they were significant.

This museum tell the story of travel in the Yukon dating back to the river boats, railroads and the Alcan Highway.

How many places can you find a DC3 on a stick?
Jul. 2019
Lots of history in this place. Some unexpected aircraft and early modes of transportation from a day gone by. Worth the time to see this place.

Look for the weather vane.
Aug. 2019
Unique DC-3 weather vane outside worth a close look. Good displays inside especially the Queen of the Yukon hanging from the ceiling. A great story goes with this Lindbergh Spirit of St. Louis type aircraft on skis.
