MacBride Museum of Yukon History is a vibrant, interactive museum that covers more than half a city block. Exhibits feature the history of the Yukon with a focus on our capital city – Whitehorse, northern animals, First Nation beadwork and tools, transportation history, the real Sam McGee’s cabin and more. We also present special exhibits that reflect our local community.
Opened in 1952, MacBride is the Yukon’s first museum with an interesting wide-ranging collection of artifacts, photographs and documents. We welcome researchers to use our archive.

Leslie Chapman is the owner/goldsmith at Fortymile Gold Workshop on the corner of 3rd Ave. and York Street in downtown Dawson City. You can visit her studio to watch her melt gold dust to hand fabricate unique and beautiful 20K gold jewellery. She calls the gold she uses from her family’s placer mine on the historic Fortymile River “green gold”. Her clients can feel confident that the gold jewellery originating in her studio has not caused harm to the environment and has not exploited labour.
