Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre Reviews & Ratings
Didn't expect to find this place but heard about it from the transport museum. Was very impressed with the quality of the exhibits and the information! Staff was very nice and helpful as well, more than willing to answer any questions you may have. Good place to bring kids as well; they had a little kids station that looked fun. Great place to learn about the prehistoric era, the Bering straight land bridge, and the climate cycles!
For a relatively small building, they have as interesting a venue as a much larger museum! The two films are very informative, as are the exhibits. The fossil collection, full sized skeletons and dioramas will please children as well as we adults. Highly recommended!!
Take time to watch the videos and listen to the the park rangers lectures, very well done, lots of information and not repetitive! The spear throwing lesson out back a fun bonus.
An excellent interpretive centre,well laid out and very informative. Certainly worth a visit if you are in Whitehorse.
AWESOME! Really excellent exhibits, made even better by lectures from staff and video presentations. You can buy a combo ticket for adjacent Yukon Transportation Museum. Highly recommended
