At the Yukon Beringia Centre you’ll find the giants that once ruled the ancient sub-continent of Beringia. Murals and dioramas take you back in time and place you among the ancient landscapes, floras and faunas. The Centre also features films, interactive exhibits and original works of art. At the heart of it all, you’ll find a full-size cast of the largest wooly mammoth ever recovered and get up close with one of Beringia’s most powerful predators, the scimitar cat. The reconstruction of the 24,000-year-old Bluefish Caves archaeological site is another highlight of the Centre.
The Beringia Centre is located on the Alaska Highway, just south of the Erik Nielsen Whitehorse International Airport, and minutes from downtown. The Centre is open daily, 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, from mid-May to late September and on Sundays and Mondays, 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm, from October to mid-May. General admission is $6.00.
