Great natural history centre

We enjoyed this interpretive centre very much. The staff were friendly, the dioramas were gorgeous, and there was a lot to see and touch.

With regular films, several skeletons (including a mammoth) AND friendly and knowledgeable interpreters, this was well worth adding this to our time in Whitehorse. Our 4 yr old made a great craft with one of the staff and our 2 yr old was free to roam wherever we went. The only thing to be mindful of is their opening hours... More

The staff here are incredibly knowledgble! We went during a quiet time and they gave us a lot of attention and were quite flexible. We did everything thoroughly and we easily spent 2 hours here. I got the combined admission here with the Museum of Transportation (across the parking lot) for $12. Great deal for easily 4 hours of museum... More

This center is a great historical learning center of prehistoric mammals and how they are discovered. I recommend this for any tourist or local to see at least once.

Weren't too many visitors on the day I went, so got an excellent personal tour by one of the staff. Some interesting videos that put everything into context as well.

Was interesting, saw a short film was very educational wish they had more to show as far as exhibits, understand it may not be busy as it is a small town but was a nice quick visit.

Not easy to visit without a car, the Centre, operated by Yukon Tourism and Culture, opened our eyes to the existence of the remains of ice-age mammals in the Yukon, and should not be missed. In fact, at least half a day should be put aside to grasp the unique life in Beringia, the name given to the region encompassing... More

The Beringia was oh my gosh fantastic! It was a great experience, very knowledgeable staff, interactive exhibits and great videos that matched the information given in the centre. They have interpretive trails leading from the parking lot to the centre. It was close to the airport and it shared the same driveway as the museum of transportation.
