George Johnston Museum


The museum is the home of the largest Tlingit artifact collection in the Yukon and is named after George Johnson, a legendary trapper, photographer and entrepreneur who brought the first car to Teslin, a 1928 Chevrolet that is on display. With his camera, Johnston captured the life of the inland Tlingit people of Teslin and Atlin, B.C., between 1910 and 1940.

Displays feature historic photographs, relics, beadwork, clothing, and crafts that reflect the traditional culture and lifestyles such as hunting, fishing, trading, everyday life and ceremonial events.
