Very well presented centre showcasing the woolly mammoth. See the inhabitants of the bygone glacial era. The presentation is great for both adults and children. A good theater with live interpretive presentations. Just ask the curator for times.

This was a pleasant surprise to understand the complexity of the YUKON and northern Canada and the changes our globe has gone through over the ages. This Centre is still a work in progress but the direction they are going is so pleasant. You pay to go in but hey they have to recover their maintenance costs somewhere. I would not recommend taking little ones in but school age kids would if given a project to research and confirm while they are there would be a great way to get them into the centre and benefit the most.
It is not a large centre and will take you a short time to see the whole centre but remember you are helping the north show off their history and help other preserve our heritage for future generations.

Very informative. The replicas of various species and remains found in the area were awesome.

This is a great place to learn palaeontology and look at excellent archeological exhibits. I found the size of the mammoths incredible and discovered many other animals from that era that I had not known before. This is the place to learn about the Yukon's Ice Age. Good for all ages. The video tells the story and shows some great scenery as well. A must see for any visit to the Yukon.
