MacBride Museum of Yukon History


Your Yukon adventure starts here! From gold rush fever to the birth of Whitehorse, MacBride Museum offers a comprehensive view of the colourful characters and groundbreaking events that shaped Canada’s Yukon. Walk through the stories in our Gold to Government Gallery, which features a candy shop and 1898 miner's saloon. Then, come face to face with a seven-foot grizzly in our Wild World Gallery, discover the truth behind the Robert Service legend at Sam McGee's Cabin, and learn about Engine 51, the locomotive that built the WP&YR Railway, in our outdoor courtyard.

MacBride also offers daily programs during the summer, a first-class gift shop, and a chance to try your hand at one of Yukon's oldest professions - gold panning.

MacBride Museum was named Canada's #1 most under-rated attraction by MSN Travel Canada. It was also named Yukon's favourite museum and attraction by a Yukon, North of Ordinary magazine readers' poll.
