Very cool place. Lots of history, knowledge and artifacts to see and learn about. The coolest part of the old telegraph office, which the museum is literally built around and over.

Don’t let the exterior fool you! There are loads of items found in this museum for your viewing pleasure. In my opinion, this should be your first choice when considering a museum. Indigenous artifacts, wildlife, Klondike, artwork, military items and much more can be found here. Get a guided tour for that added experience. It’s a big place so take your time and explore everything that it has to offer.

Great place to spend a hour or so, right in the heart of downtown Whitehorse!
We really wondering the three floors of exhibits, people were they helpful in explaining things to us when we asked.
Totally handicapped accessible, which was great!

If one is interested in the history of the Yukon Territory, then this museum is a must for visitors to the Yukon Territory. One can easily spend three hours in this museum.

The MacBride Museum is well worth the time to visit. There are different galleries featuring Yukon First Nations, Natural World, Gold Rush, Police. Not overwhelming, great exhibits and information.

The MacBride has struck a nice between ancient history, indigenous history, and settler history. They have been successful in not concentrating to heavily on gold rush history. Good building and good staff.

They have a very diverse range of displays, from historical to art. The the human and natural history is very well presented, just enough information on interesting topics. We weren't expecting so many beautiful art exhibits, however, and they too helped tell the story of Whitehorse. The building itself is an architectural gem, making walking through all the exhibits easy. My favourites were the neon signs they are preserving from the Whitehorse's midcentury past. Can't visit Whitehorse without visiting here! My only quibble is that while they have information about the Yukon's Aboriginal community, I didn't notice anything related to the Peace and Reconciliation movement, or a response to the tragic stories of the residential schools.

We found this museum in an article on Whitehorse's hidden treasures. It's not hidden, but it's a treasure. We went during Covid and understood that everything wouldn't be as it usually is. Still, it was a wonderful visit, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
