MacBride Museum of Yukon History

MacBride Museum of Yukon History Review

From gold-rush fever to the birth of Whitehorse, the MacBride Museum of Yukon History offers a comprehensive view of the colorful characters and groundbreaking events that shaped the territory. Follow the Yukon River through the history of Whitehorse in the Gold to Government exhibition. The museum also boasts a unique collection of wildlife, geology, historic artifacts, and photographs, alongside fine First Nations beadwork. The gold-rush displays are particularly telling of just what people went through to find a little glint of color. Outdoor artifacts include the cabin of Sam McGee, who was immortalized in Robert Service's famous poem "The Cremation of Sam McGee." MacBride also offers guided tours and a chance to try your hand at one of the Yukon's oldest professions—gold panning.
