Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre

The Klondike Gold Rush brought many a miner and fortune-seeker to the Yukon. Not long after the first miners arrived, stories of giant beasts unearthed during the quest for gold began to spread. To this day, with the help of local miners and First Nations, more treasures of the Yukon’s distant past are being recovered every year. These remains and artifacts tell a story of a world quite unlike the Yukon you see today.

Here at the Centre, we provide our visitors with a look back into the amazing and often bizarre world of ice age Yukon. You’ll learn about ice ages, extinct animals, and First Nations legends—all contributing to a better understanding of the long lost sub-continent of Beringia.

Murals and dioramas depict Beringia’s landscapes, floras and faunas. The Centre also features films, original works of art, and exhibits of discovered remains from throughout the Yukon.

The Centre is located in Whitehorse, Yukon.
