This museum is currently expanding and undergoing renovations but what is available for viewing is very informative. You'll find a good display of the wildlife of the area as well as the history of the city and the building of the Alaskan Highway.

This museum has great exhibits for a $10 entry fee. Actual gold fragments. Impressive display on northern animals including 8 foot high grizzly, wolves and polar bears. Had to admire the feather parkas and the beaded mukluks. Impressive work.
