Yukon Transportation Museum


For a true understanding of Yukon character visit the Yukon Transportation Museum - A Moving Experience. Come and experience big, impressive modes of transportation that tell dramatic, authentic, and personal stories of Yukon ingenuity and self-sufficiency.

The Yukon Transportation Museum brings to life over 100 years of transportation history in the Yukon. Follow the stories of the early bush pilots as they struggled to make community access easier. Hike the Chilkoot trail alongside the intrepid stampeders as they forged their way by boat, foot and train to make it to the storied riches of Yukon’s Klondike gold fields. Hear the tales of the people that shaped the Alaska Highway, the road still essential to life in Canada’s famous Yukon. At the Yukon Transportation Museum you will see, read, and hear about the rich history of the north through lively stories and the interesting, detailed and surprising size of displays.
