The Yukon Transportation Museum offers a variety of programs for the public, private groups, and special event attendees. See below for a description of our regular programs and links to our special events.
The Yukon Transportation Museum proudly offers tours by appointment year-round. Tours last approximately 30-40 minutes and highlight some of the key stories and artefacts in our collection. Contact us to book your tour.
During the summer months (May to August), tours are offered daily at 11:30 a.m., as well as 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Meet your interpretive guide at the front entrance five minutes before the tour start time.
We have three regular tours in summer which we are pleased to present to you.
The Lemonade Tour: Learn about Yukon transportation and shipping routes, and their history, through the lens of lemonade. Find out how lemonade made it up to the Yukon during the Gold Rush, who was able to get it, and why it was important.
The Ingenuity Tour: Take a journey through the make-do mechanics and DIY transportation methods throughout Yukon history.
The Winter Tour: Explore stories and modes of winter-specific transportation unique to the Yukon.
Our youngest guests are just as important as our oldest! Be sure to check out our play area in the main exhibit hall (for kids ages 0-5). Toys and games for kids can be found in the Bush Pilot Room, and the gift shop has speedster cars available for children to ride around the museum, under supervision. Also stop by our miner’s area (under the exhibit stairs) for some kids-only fun. For older children, ask our gift shop staff for a scavenger hunt sheet.
Be sure to check out Wee Moves if you are interested in having your child participate! All information for registration and drop-in can be found under the Wee Moves tab on this site.
Front desk staff are happy to provide with a list of children’s areas in the museum. Just ask!
Whitehorse Street Pianos Season
The YTM is home of one of the Whitehorse Street Pianos! While we’re open, it’s always available to be played! We do ask that our youngest musicians are supervised by adults while playing.
