Before the Alaska Highway was built, Teslin was a remote paddle wheeler outpost where people fished, trapped and hunted off the land. Venerated Tlingit Elder, photographer, trapper and entrepreneur George Johnston used his 1928 Chevrolet to hunt and taxi people through a then roadless Teslin. The Museum tells this unique Yukon story. Our charming museum, in the heart of Teslin, is a heritage gem with exquisitely designed displays of Tlingit native ceremonial regalia, hunting artifacts and rare local photographs. Exhibits and a film theater tell the story of venerated Elder K'aashtl'áa (George Johnston) and the Tlingit people.
