A Bit About Us

Have you ever wondered how massive sternwheelers were able to navigate through the Yukon River's Five Finger Rapids? Or how bush pilots were able to heat their engine oil in -40℃? People in the north have always been industrious, innovative and capable, and we're proud to tell their tales at the Yukon Transportation Museum.

YTM shares glimpses and glimmers of the Yukon’s character through the stories of people moving themselves, their possessions, and their ideas around the vast landscape and harsh scenery of the north. Our collection includes retired modes of transportation (like the Canadian Pacific Airlines DC-3 Wind Vane or LCC-1 LeTourneau Sno-Train), miniature displays, art exhibits and a treasure trove of photographs, artifacts and tall tales.

We also host periodic live events and community programs throughout the year, as well as curate the ever-popular Mile 917 Gift Shop, stocked with unique souvenirs, local artisan goods and educational toys.

Discover the rich traditions of the Indigenous people that shaped transportation in this territory, marvel at the construction of the world-famous Alaska Highway and soar with early bush pilots through crisp (and sometimes harrowing) skies. The Yukon Transportation Museum will guide you through this incredible territory and illustrate how and why we have been moving over this land for thousands of years.
