Reviewed 18 January 2017

This Museum is good for young and old alike. It gives a wonderful overview to the cultural, historical and natural life of the area. Don't miss the gold rush galleries, we almost did. I wish we had had more time to spend there.

“MacBride Museum Whitehorse ”
Reviewed 4 January 2017 via mobile

This museum is a wonderful example of community and territorial history. It's got a really great layout and covers everything of general interest from prehistoric to modern time. There's well written storyboards and interesting artifacts to get your imagination into the frame. I was fortunate to go in the off season and had all the time in the world and pretty much the place to ourselves to take lots of time. I would like to go back again once the expansion and construction in the new part is done. I'm looking forward to seeing more artifacts and stories. This is for sure a professionally run organization from the customer perspective and shows pride in the whole facility.

A great place to encounter Klondyke Gold Rush history. There were several samples of gold from the different creeks that were mined along with all different kinds of equipment to see,

I was looking for things to do in Whitehorse, and the MacBride museum was a great budget-friendly attraction. Lots of visual and auditory displays, and plenty of information cards to read. Really interesting history of Yukon's origins!
