Centre d'interprétation du Yukon Beringia

Au Yukon Beringia Centre, vous trouverez les géants qui régnaient autrefois sur l'ancien sous-continent de la Béringie. Les peintures murales et les dioramas vous font voyager dans le temps et vous placent parmi les paysages anciens, les flores et les faunes. Le Centre présente également des films, des expositions interactives et des œuvres d'art originales. Au cœur de tout cela, vous trouverez un casting grandeur nature du plus grand mammouth laineux jamais retrouvé et vous rapprochez de l'un des prédateurs les plus puissants de Béringie, le chat cimeterre. La reconstruction du site archéologique de Bluefish Caves, vieux de 24 000 ans, est un autre point fort du Centre.
