Yukon Archives


From love letters to home movies, photographs to handwritten diaries, turn-of-the-century newspapers to modern sound recordings, the Yukon Archives preserves and shares a wealth of original, unique and irreplaceable materials that shed light on almost every aspect of the Yukon experience.

The Archives is a great place to start your search into that mysterious relative who may have taken part in the Klondike Gold Rush or any other significant event in Yukon history. Staff are always available to help with your search. You can also view one of the rotating exhibits, which touch on virtually every subject and theme related to the Yukon.
