    MacBride Museum in town. The log building doesn’t look all that big, but the inside is crammed with displays that cover the history and culture of the area from the days of the First Nations people to the gold rush days, to the building and growth of Whitehorse. There is a display of indigenous animals that is really quite an amazing example of the art of taxidermy. Other displays tell often humorous stories of many Yukon characters. And speaking of characters, the museum houses the actual cabin built by Sam McGee who inspired Robert Service’s famous poem “The Cremation of Sam McGee”. This museum is a must see in Whitehorse.

    This museum is fantastic. Whoever is interested in the magnificent history of the Yukon and the Klondike should visit it and its magnitude of historic artifacts. I especially appreciated the unbelievable variety of gold samples with notes about the claims they were found on. As I had been invited to the claim of Joe Langevin on Victoria Creek and was allowed to shovel and pan there - Joe shared the findings afterwards with me back in the 70ies - I love my gold until today and was too happy to see the gold from other claims. Enjoy it as much as I did. Klaus Ollmann from Hamburg, Germany
