After the mud flap installation, we drove into downtown and visited the MacBride Museum of Yukon History.  The museum had an impressive collection of native animals:

Sam McGee’s cabin was also on site.  Robert Service, a bank teller at the time, met Sam and asked to use his name in the now-famous poem, The Cremation of Sam McGee.
