About
Situated on the banks of the Yukon River, the Cultural Centre is a place where we celebrate the heritage and contemporary way of life of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation people. It is also a gathering place for people of all cultures. The vision of the Cultural Centre is to revive, preserve, and demonstrate our language, practices, values and traditional way of life for the benefit of Kwanlin Dün. We also want to share our culture with other First Nations and people from around the world.

Impressive Facility
May 2021
Another great facility that Yukoners are lucky to be able to enjoy (along with the Yukon Arts Centre). Not really a "destination", but a great place to attend an event. When they have a local exhibition, it's well worth a quick visit if you're nearby. A visit to the adjacent public library is also recommended - there's a particularly impressive collection of Northern books in the south-east corner of the library that is under-appreciated but highly recommended.

Oct. 2020 • Friends
We are three BC travellers spending 5 days in Whitehorse. It is unfortunate that, as of October 9th, the cultural centre is not open to the public yet.

Nice civic space
Jan. 2020 • Family
We were on our way to the Lumel Glass studio, and happened upon the Kwanlin Dun center which was across the street. It is a newish civic building that offers refuge from the cold outside. (-36 degrees). There are some exhibits about the First Nation and how this building came to be. We wish it would have WiFi.

Beautiful building!

Clearly the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre is the center for so many events, meetings and information. The self-guided tour was difficult to understand and no one greeted or offered to help so I just wandered around the first floor.

Kwanlin Dun is a Great Cultural Facility!
Aug. 2019
The building is impressive but there is not much to see in the building except a movie about the making of the canoe, and a few artifacts. I would not recommend it.

Not much in the way of displays. Only real display was concerning the native languages. Appeared to be more of a learning centre and meeting location.

Learn About Woolly Mammoths

Learn about these giant animals wandering around here many years ago among other giant animals. How about a giant beaver that weighed 400 pounds. Great staff. Clean centre. Lots of parking.

During Adäka - totally alive!
Jun. 2019 • Couples
My only experience was during Adäka the weekend before Canada Day. Kwanlin Dün is alive from top to bottom, end to end. Part of it is the festival, but part of it is having a community cultural centre/center that's built with the culture in mind. It's a beautiful building, with nice open spaces, and recognition of indigenous peoples all around. There is even a room for elders and room for smudging.

The back grassy area is taken over by food trucks and learning sessions during Adäka, and the main hall is impressive for dance and/or singing groups.

They're connected to the public library and until the end of August are a participant in the Yukon Gold Explorer's Passport.

Moderately interesting
Jun. 2019 • Couples
The building is very attractive, but it is meant primarily as a community centre. It offers minimal information about the history of the Kwanlin Dun nation, and has only a small exhibition of local crafts. The cafeteria was closed when we visited.
