Situated in the 'Ä’äy Chù Valley, the Thechàl Dhâl' Visitor Centre is a one-hour drive north of Haines Junction on the Alaska Highway.
The Thechàl Dhâl' Visitor Centre has new exhibits, developed in close collaboration with local First Nations. Learn how the land here, despite its harsh winters, has long sustained Dań – people. Inside, the large, colourful exhibits sparkle with original bead work by Kluane First Nation citizens.
Out on the deck, enjoy new panels about grizzly bears, Dall’s sheep, and the dramatically changing landscape. Scan for sheep with a spotting scope: they are most likely to be visible on the nearby mountain, Thechàl Dhâl', in spring and fall.
In the bright and warm Sharing Place, ‘Alhaashajàl Kų Yìw, relax and enjoy the view during inclement weather. Some days, there will be programming by a Kluane First Nation interpreter or Elder.
