This museum is great for a taste of life in and the History of both Whitehorse and the Yukon. I was there in September and on Wednesday evenings they had live music and a bar in the front room which was so much fun and packed! Great spot.

Small but Fascinating

The museum was so interesting and well laid out. The collection is small but nicely displayed and with a tonne of local history/nature and information. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great way to spend a morning.

Updates museum
Feb. 2020 • Family
Visited the Macbride Museum with my two young children and they loved it. There are three floors of artifacts and history to discover. My children loved the old car benches and the Chilkoot exhibit.

Great little museum showcasing Yukon history
Feb. 2020
Fascinating museum with sections dedicated to different aspects of the Yukon Territory's history - First Nations, animals, explorers, Gold Rush, etc. A bit confusing layout, even with a map, but that might have been more due to the snow that restricted some of the outside passageways.

Everything you need to know about the Yukon
Aug. 2019
This museum has indoor and outdoor exhibits where you learn about the culture, history and economy of the region. We saw exhibits on the First Nations peoples, taxidermy wild animals of the area, information on the building of the Alaska Highway and the Canol oil pipeline project, information on the Gold Rush. There was even the "Woodchuck" workboat on the Yukon, a replica of Sam McGee's cabin, and the iconic rearing horse sign of White Horse. We had planned on spending an hour but three hours later we were still looking and learning. What a wonderful museum. It covered all the topics that a visitor to the Yukon would want to know about. It dovetailed nicely with the Robert Service cabin in Dawson and the Signpost Forest in Watson Lake and the various museums we had visited about First Nations peoples. The best!

Nice indoor activity place
Jan. 2020 • Family
If you’re looking for an indoor activity to do, as we were, in the -36 degree Celsius Yukon January, this is it!
We had the museum to ourselves on the day we visited. The exhibits were engaging, and informative, especially the hall of the animals.
