George Johnston Museum

Teslin

George Johnston Museum and Heritage Park is a must-see Teslin attraction named after the venerated Tlingit elder, trapper, fur trader, entrepreneur and photographer. George Johnston's photographs, his restored 1928 Chevy hunting car and colourful exhibits of Tlingit ceremonial regalia and traditional artifacts tell the story of the Inland Tlingit as they met the rapid changes of the first half of the 20th century.

The museum gift shop replicating Johnston’s 1950 general store stocks Tlingit arts and crafts, and small Yukon gifts. A small theatre shows films including renowned National Film Board film: “Picturing a People” by Tlingit Director Carol Geddes. Visitors can view a 1940s Air Radio building exhibit being built, stroll prepared trails or picnic in the interpretive rest areas.
