The museum is right next store to the Yukon Hotel Restaurant and gas. It is full of taxidermy animals found in the region. It was worth a look.

Stopped for gas during an early March snowstorm. We weren't planning on seeing the museum because it was closed. While paying for gas, the attendant asked if we would like to see the museum.

We were happy to find this little museum at the Yukon Motel. The animals were so interesting and my 12 year old grandson and I really enjoyed it. And it was free! We bought some postcards at the gift shop and right next door to the museum is a post office where we were able to buy stamps and mail... More
