Learn about the Yukon’s history at the MacBride Museum of the Yukon, experience pre-historic history at the Yukon Beringia Interpretative Centre and stop in at the unique Yukon Transportation Museum located nearby. And when you’ve seen all these top sites, Main Street is perfect for strolling and shopping with its shops galleries and café’s.
