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.

Beckoning us from its setback off 2nd street, this place is one of hope, learning and remembrance. The permanent installations told a story of resilience, the impacts of colonialism, and the belief in a shared future. We were welcomed to watch the construction of a traditional canoe in process, with one of the creators generously sharing some of his thoughts with us. We were drawn to contemplation by the roaring river, reflecting on what has passed, what we can learn, and how we can apply that learning going forward. We thank the First Nation for sharing their stories so generously.

We were wowed by this beautiful building, its historic and modern displays, art and interaction with artists in residence. Outside there are little workshops for the artists and a group of indigenous artisans are working in traditional ways on a canoe made from a huge tree.

Beautiful!! Such a special space, right on the water. The longhouse and actually the whole building is stunning. Historical art as well as new done by local youth are on display.

This is a beautiful facility, with lots of great cultural pieces and local stories. When we visited there was a VR exhibit that was beautiful and engaging. There was a workshop going on in one of the many event spaces and a grand room where they could accommodate a large function. It doesn’t take long to go through this space, but it is a must see when in Whitehorse.

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.

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.

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.

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.
