Dawson City Museum

The Dawson City Museum is the place to begin your exploration of Dawson and the Klondike Gold Rush. Discover Yukon's First Peoples and explorers. Experience the gold rush through the stampeders, the entrepreneurs, and the demimonde.
A variety of programs are available for our visitors. Experience the law prior to the arrival of the North-West Mounted Police. Discover for yourself what it takes to be a Stampeder. Try your hand at the rockerbox and prepare to be amazed at the gold pouring demonstration.

The browser and serious researcher alike will enjoy pouring over the materials in the Museum’s Klondike History Library. Does your family lore have a relative who participated in the Stampede of ’98? Did they perhaps climb the Chilkoot? Let us help you find out.

BONJOUR!

Yukon Artists At Work

This artist-run co-operative gallery has brought some of the best Yukon art to the world since it was founded ten years ago. All-original and all-Yukon, Yukon Artists at Work’s goal is to provide a venue for emerging and established artists. Artists get the chance to develop in a supportive community, and to grow their business skills to enter markets outside of the territory. From an original dozen members, YA@W now features the work of about 35 painters, potters, sculptors, photographers and fibre artists (and many other disciplines as well). All artists are juried into the co-op, ensuring the best Yukon art is represented. As part of the co-op, member artists take turns running the gallery... so you’ll always have a chance to meet a Yukon artist ‘in the flesh’ when you visit! The gallery is located just off Two-Mile Hill, easily accessible by car, public transit, or on foot.
