Interpretive Centre Exterior

Northern Lights Centre

Watson Lake

The Northern Lights Centre is home to the Yukon's only visitor facility dedicated to the science and folklore of the aurora borealis. A two-part presentation features "The Yukon's Northern Lights" (filmed and produced entirely in the Yukon) and "Big". "Big" is an entertaining sky show that uses a light-hearted storytelling style, 3-D computer animation, stop-motion characters, and a surround-sound musical score to explore the age-old mysteries of the universe. The two part presentation lasts approximately one hour.
