Heritage Yukon: Step into Our Story

Established in 1977, the Yukon Historical & Museums Association is a registered charity that works to inspire and share a passion for Yukon heritage. We build a learning environment for history and culture and the development of skills and best practices. We share knowledge with the Yukon heritage community and support each other in protection and preservation projects. Most of our activities are collaborations and partnerships. Many of our events and programs honour those in the heritage sector that are dedicated to our vision.
