Experience the thrill of swaying 65 feet above the raging rapids. Feel the exhilaration of breathing the fresh mountain air and experiencing the vast northern Canadian wilderness. Enjoy the excitement of watching rafters maneuver the rollercoaster canyon and Class V rapids below.
This is the call of the wild. This is where your wilderness adventure begins. Are you ready?
The Yukon Suspension Bridge and Outdoor Museum is here to take you on a dramatic journey. Soak in the scenery, which can be considered the height of Canada’s beauty. Breathe the fresh air, hear the rage of the roaring rapids and tick another experience off your bucket list.
The bridge and museum have been designed for travellers of all types and ages. The site provides a starting point where visitors can learn more about the history and wildlife of the area, but many will simply fall under the spell of the churning river and majestic mountain backdrop.
Whatever you want to do, this adventure belongs to you.
Outdoor Interpretive Museum

Learn about the mountains and the natural area from a variety of exhibits, including a large scale 3 dimensional map to give you an understanding of the areas from Skagway to Whitehorse.
Learn about the Human History
Read about the First Nations and stories of the gold rush that ran from the top of the White Pass down the rivers and lakes, and into the gold fields. Step into a traditional trappers cabin, much like the one that was originally on the mountain behind.
Expand Your Knowledge of the Natural History and High Country

Enjoy the spectacular views from the main viewing platforms and the winding boardwalks.
Take some time to cross the bridge and walk the boardwalks on the opposite side of the river to explore the authentic trapper’s cabin.
The facility is wheelchair accessible up to the beginning of the bridge.
What was “The Land of the Living Sun” like for those who came before? Enrich your historical knowledge of the White Pass and the natives and first settlers to the area. Our outdoor interpretive exhibits combines nature and knowledge, bringing a museum quality experience to the natural setting.
There’s nothing like fresh mountain air to work up an appetite. Take a break at the Assayer’s Cafe and enjoy organic coffee, snacks and a variety of lunch offerings, including our famous Bison Chili.
