    This museum is beautifully organized and curated, and exceeded expectations in every way. I especially enjoyed all of the gold rush information and exhibits, as well as the animals of Yukon exhibit. The Indigenous information was also beautifully presented with hundreds of interesting photos and artifacts. We intended to spend an hour, and spent almost 3.

    This museum has a lot of interesting displays including a G sized model train if the White Pass railway in Whitehorse (which btw the real one should come all the way to Whitehorse again like it used to). The displays are in really good shape and cover all modes of transport. It also gives a sense of how transportation was used and adapted to the north country. We would go again if given the chance.

    This is an amazing Interpretive Centre! We took the tour with Tracy and she was delightful to listen to. Full of knowledge and well presented, she gave an entertaining and knowledgeable presentation. Very well done and I could have listened to her for hours!
    This is a must-see in my opinion.

    Always a great stop on my annual visit to Whitehorse. There is always an interesting mix of local artist creations and I don’t always purchase something but always enjoy taking in the creative energy.
    Well done keeping this place available.

    This is the second time we visit Whitehorse and North End Gallary is a mist visit place. The merchandise are unique by artist. We bought a few crafted jewellery from them this time. Must visit.

    We stopped by for a quick visit. This is a large facility set up as a community center for locals. The main exhibit hall was closed for refurbishment, so not much to see. There was a class for hat making going on while we visited in one of the many rooms available. The artifacts shown in the main entrance and hallway were interesting.

    I really enjoyed the exhibits in the art gallery that were there in Sept 2022. Beautiful photography, insightful texts, and gorgeous bead work that provided insights into Indigenous culture in the north.

    During our stay outside Whitehorse on a mission to witness the magical Aurora, we came across Lumel Gallery and signed up for a 1 hour Hot Date for 2.
    What an incredible experience for couples or friends. We had so much fun!
    The passion of the team at Lumel is infectious.
    The amazing Noah and Alec? guided us through creating 2 ornaments each. Choosing colours was the hardest part!
    The ethos, community spirit and community engagement is a credit to the wonderful owners.
    The artistic team members made this one-of-a-kind experience safe and one never to be forgotten.
    Our creations will make us smile whenever we look at them.
    We also bought some other special items made by the local artists as gifts.
    The studio is worth taking time to look around with much history and fascinating inclusion of local ash in their creations.
    Thank you so much Lumel team …. Lumel Gallery is a Whitehorse community gem

    A nice Museum with information on the history of the Church. Across the street are several interesting Murals. I got my Yukon Passport stamped at this Museum.

    Beautifully tasteful selection of unique gifts. I bought an incredible print by a local artist here that I absolutely love! The soaps are lovely little works of art themselves. Funny cards, jewellery & pottery, all in a sweet little shop. A must see in Whitehorse!

    This is a fun activity for young families. The train is not fast and goes every 30 minutes. Very cheap fees and there is a playground.

    We happened upon this place as we were seeking refuge from the cold. (Walk two blocks, find a place to go indoors to thaw before heading out again) Enjoyed looking at the current exhibition Rebekah Miller “Skin”. Some historic photographs of Whitehorse on exhibit as well.
