We recently held my parent's 50th anniversary party at the Yukon Transportation Museum. The staff were extremely responsive, helpful, and accommodating. The venue oozes character - such neat artifacts...so many great photo ops! Our 70 guests fit comfortably and there was still plenty of room for dancing. The kids loved it, especially the old train car! If you're looking to... More

This is a great little museum, with historic photos and artifacts. Nice gallery with a train car you can go inside and historic storefronts. Knowledgable and passionate interpreter in the hangar. And the cool DC3 weathervane outside! Nice gift shop.

My girlfriend and I came here after we visited the Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre and it was $12 for both admissions. We easily spent an hour here with Murray, an older gentlemen who really knows his stuff! He is incredibly knowledgeable and knows the Whitehorse community really well. I was quite surprised on how much Whitehorse went through. It is... More

We visited the transport museum while filling in some time in Whitehorse. Given it is low season there were few visitors so we were assigned our own guide. He was very knowledgeable, having first hand experience relating to many of the exhibits. We felt a little rude as we had limited time to experience the stories. Probably best for couples,... More

This is a nice set up of transportation history. Trains planes and automobiles. Well kept up and easy to access. Also right beside the Beringa center

Such a great museum...a must-stop if you are visiting Whitehorse. Very well laid out with lots to see and learn. The staff was wonderful and able to answer questions. Really great for anyone and everyone! When visiting, don't miss all the extra displays out doors and in the quonset outside.

It was a very cool place to see the transition of transportation in the Yukon. From dog sleds for the RCMP, to tractors, to trucks toting canoes, there is something for everyone. Great place to learn about how people got around in the Yukon. This is also home to the worlds largest weather vane, which sits outside in front of... More

an amazing tribute to the pioneers of the Yukon region and the Klondike gold rush era. Guided tours through the facility are available. The information is well presented so it's possible to wander through in your own time if you prefer. We spent time with a very interesting gentleman who volunteers in the hall which houses the planes. Outside is... More

The museum costs of two attached buildings and an outside area. You can buy a combined ticket with the Beringia museum. Neither of these places should be missed on a visit to Whitehorse. It is obviously a labour of love, as there is a lack of investment apparent from the condition of some of the exhibits, which would benefit from... More
