Explore Yukon's
Spirited History



For many, Yukon’s history consists of a prehistoric narrative, First Nations culture and oral tradition,  the Klondike Gold Rush episode, the Alaska Highway story and various other 20th century themes. 

But there’s one other thread that’s been weaving its way through Yukon history in dozens of communities and historic locations, among First Nations and newcomers alike, from 1861 to the present.

That’s Yukon’s spirited history, and it’s illuminated for you at the Old Log Church Museum.

Leave behind whatever you know or think you know about “church” and experience a genuine part of Yukon’s story through its spirited pioneers. Explore the museum as an essential chapter in Yukon’s foundation story and the Old Log Church as a concrete reminder of the Yukon experience.

The guides were amazing. They truly spent the time to walk us through the old church from both the inside and the outside.

I was not prepared to be interested in this church but I was so entranced by the unusual stories, we stayed there 2 hours. One of the best things to do in Whitehorse.
