2020: 100 Years of Yukon Aviation Yukon aviation has been and is massively influential on all the people of the Yukon. Through its 100 years we see innovation ingenuity, social experiences and a century of unprecedented change. The 'marvel of flight' was first beheld by Yukoners on August 15th and 16th, 1920. Before 1920, the sky was the domain of ravens. To recognize 100 years of Yukon aviation history in 2020 we invite your help in creating 100 ravens to fly in our model train exhibit. For Culture Days 2019, join us at the Yukon Transportation Museum from 12-1 PM on Friday, Saturday or Sunday as our staff help you make a raven to join our miniature Whitehorse! Kids: Please work with an adult if you are under 12. Everyone: On the table you will see detailed instructions and suggestions. Be creative and have fun! This event is free and admission to YTM will be by donation from 12-1 PM on September 27th, 28th, and 29th.

This event is free and will be accepting optional pay-what-you-may donations for admission.

Yukon Transportation Museum

Welcome to the Yukon Transportation Museum! Yukon character is glimpsed through the stories of people moving themselves, their possessions, and their ideas through the vast landscape and its ever changing seasons. The Yukon Transportation Museum brings to life transportation history in the Yukon. Follow the stories of the early bush pilots as they struggled to make community access easier. Hike the Chilkoot trail alongside the intrepid stampeders as they forged their way by boat, foot and train to make it to the storied riches of Yukon’s Klondike gold fields. Hear the tales of the people that shaped the Alaska Highway, the road still essential to life in Canada’s famous Yukon. These are stories of love, loss, riches, ingenuity, devastation, adventure, fear, separation, and joy. They show us how and why people have been moving over this land for thousands of years.
