Museum Resources 

      Yukon museums and First Nation cultural centres perform a vital service in preserving our cultural artifacts, traditions and natural history. Yukon Government values their contributions and works in partnership with them to set planning priorities, provide resources to empower them, and support their successful development and operation.

What we do

The Museums Unit provides a variety of services in support of Yukon’s collective heritage.

We do this by:

  • Administering funding programs. 
  • Advising on management and operational best practices.
  • Providing technical and hands-on assistance as well as training opportunities to institutions, staff and independent contractors. 
  • Overseeing the management and operation of the Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre.

 Cultural and Heritage Training Survey

The Museums Unit with the assistance of the Yukon Bureau of Statistics is conducting a survey on cultural and heritage training that will be available from May 5th to May 20. Your participation is appreciated as the survey will determine training needs and priorities for 2016/17.
