Fodor's Review

Its inviting atmosphere makes the center a good stop to explore the heritage of Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in Native people. For countless generations Hän-speaking people lived in the Yukon River drainage of western Yukon and eastern Alaska. This specific language group settled around the mouth of the Klondike River. Through seasonal displays, tours, cultural activities, films, and performances, you can learn about the traditional and contemporary life of "the people of the river."

Though somewhat sparse, the historical exhibits convey a sense of what the gold rush was like for the people who were here first and who saw more value in a good caribou hunt than in shiny metal in the ground. The gift shop sells fine Native art, clothing, and beaded footwear, and stocks music and books.
