Quite kid friendly. Interesting stop. Great section of taxidermied animals. Be sure to check out the gold nugget display from different creeks in the Yukon. Really cool.

Our family spent about an hour here. As others have noted, it is under renovation but still a lot of interesting local history, tons and tons of artifacts and a nice selection of local animal mounts.

Was a great little museum - panning for gold was a lot of fun. Site is under construction so not fully accessible. The new building looks like it will be amazing!
