There are a variety of exhibits, and it is amazing to hear the guide recite "The Cremation of Sam McGee" by heart. The most absorbing exhibit for me was that on the building of the Alcan, which is downstairs.

Great photo OP with costumes and props available as soon as you enter. Stuffed animals in dioramas give a good sense of scale. Cultural and historical displays are well done. 1 to 2 hours is enough for a visit. Close to the visitor information center.
