Wasn't sure about this when I found out that it was $20/head. But it was worth it. It's a quirky museum with a couple of galleries. One of them is dedicated to the unique characters that made up the early Yukon. Really fascinating stories behind the names.

This museum is worth the visit if you like finding out more about local places. It's only small but has got a bit of history plus some of the local wildlife

$6 for a downtown tour of old/original buildings, pioneer stories. I was the only person to show up but the 1900's dressed gal did the tour anyway. What a value. 45 minutes or so of good entertainment
