Museums Unit

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

What's New

Sights and Sounds at the Beringia Centre                                     

Beringia Centre

We at the Beringia Centre are very excited to announce that our theatre audio/video upgrade project has been completed! It was sad to say goodbye to our much loved dual-slide carousel and VHS player, but there comes a time in every electronic system’s life when it needs to be replaced.

Our theatre is now equipped to handle full 1080p video from our Blu-Ray players, as well as high definition video from a variety of computer sources. Adding to the vastly improved video quality is a completely new sound system—a new setup that sounds amazing.

We would like to thank the Cultural Spaces Canada Fund for assisting with the funding for this project. And a huge thank-you goes to Wayne, Al, Jim and the crew at Allstar Show Industries for putting together such a great system.

We are keen to start making use of our new system, so if you are looking for a great venue for a film/lecture/dance party/etc., let us know!
