Overview

The Kluane Museum of Natural History offers world-class wildlife exhibits with dioramas depicting natural habitat. Also displayed are Native clothing, tools and weapons of the Southern Tutchone people as well as minerals and gemstones that are found in the Yukon. The gift shop has many locally made crafts, including beaded, fur-trimmed moccasins, as well as a good selection of books dealing with the North. A large parking lot with two entrances makes it easy for vehicles as big as transport trucks to pull through. Watch for the World's Largest Gold Pan located next to the museum.

A well maintained and surprising museum, with dioramas of stuffed native animals and clear explanations of their habitats and their survival. Also information on the First Nation. Well worth a stop.

The dioramas of stuffed animals are worthy of anything the Natural Museum of Ottawa has to offer. Excellent design.

A jewel in the rough, the museum facility may look a little small and aged on the exterior but the interior has captivating First Nation and local wildlife displays. The museum seems allot larger on the inside than the front exterior suggests. It's worth an...More
