Yukon Transportation Museum

The Yukon Transportation Museum brings transportation history in Canada’s rugged Yukon Territory to life. With a variety of indoor and outdoor exhibitions, we share glimpses and glimmers of the Yukon’s character through the stories of people moving themselves, their possessions, and their ideas around the vast landscape and harsh scenery of the north.

Located in Yukon’s capital city near the Erik Nielsen Whitehorse International Airport, we are a charitable non-profit organization and home to a variety of fascinating exhibitions and displays including retired modes of transportation (like the Canadian Pacific Airlines DC-3 Wind Vane), miniature displays, art exhibits and a treasure trove of photographs, artifacts and tall tales. We host periodic live events and community programs throughout the year, as well as curate and maintain the ever-popular Mile 917 Gift Shop, stocked with unique souvenirs, local art and educational toys.

You will discover the rich traditions of the Indigenous people that shaped transportation in this territory, marvel at the construction of the world-famous Alaska Highway and soar with the early bush pilots through crisp (and sometimes harrowing!) northern skies. The Yukon Transportation Museum will guide you through Yukon’s stories of love, loss, riches, ingenuity, adventure, fear, separation, joy and determination. These preserved stories and artifacts illustrate how and why we have been moving over this land for thousands of years.

“A Must do in Whitehorse”

“Wow! I don’t know where to start, this museum is exceptional and covers the full gambit of transportation methods and history in the Yukon. The stories it tells bring what it was like in days gone by in the Yukon to life. If you are in town this is something you should have on your list. A special thank you to Nicole for making our visit so very special by sharing her knowledge of the museum and it’s artifacts.”
