Overview of the Strategic Plan


The Yukon Transportation Museum is a community hub with programs, exhibits and stories which reach out beyond its collection of transportation artefacts. Yukoners young and old are drawn to the YTM and the organization is now looking ahead as it transforms how we view a museum in the 21st century.

Jane Koepke, a Whitehorse based planner and community engagement expert and Judy Oberlander, a Vancouver based cultural organization consultant were retained to facilitate the development of this Strategic Plan with the YTM Board and Staff. This action-oriented Strategic Plan will guide the Yukon Transportation Museum to realize its mission: to tell the stories of Yukoners’ ingenuity and self-sufficiency through the history of transportation in the Yukon.

As a leader in the Yukon museum field, the YTM has decided that this new Strategic Plan will be organized in relation to the five areas of the Yukon Museum Standards: governance; community relationships; security and facilities; collections stewardship; and exhibitions and programming.

The Yukon Transportation Museum gratefully acknowledges the financial support of Yukon Government – Community Development Fund towards the creation of this Strategic Plan 2018-2023.
