Yukon Transportation Museum
The Yukon Transportation Museum brings transportation history in Canada’s Territory to life. With a variety of indoor and outdoor exhibitions, we share Yukon’s character glimpsed through the stories of people moving themselves, their possessions, and their ideas around the vast landscape and ever-changing seasons of the north.
Located in Whitehorse, we are a charitable non-profit organization and home to fascinating exhibitions, displays and programming including retired modes of transportation (like the Canadian Pacific Airlines DC-3 Wind Vane), miniature displays, art exhibits, live events, children’s programming and the Mile 917 Gift Shop curated with unique souvenirs, local art and educational toys.
Explore Yukon’s history at the Yukon Transportation Museum.
You will discover the rich history of the Indigenous people that shaped transportation before the construction of the world-famous Alaska Highway and soar with the early bush pilots as they glide through new territory. 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.
