George Johnston Museum

George Johnston Museum and Heritage Park is the Teslin attraction named after a venerated Tlingit elder, trapper, fur trader, entrepreneur and photographer. Johnston's superb photographs, his restored 1928 Chevrolet, and exhibits of Tlingit ceremonial regalia and traditional artifacts tell the story of the Inland Tlingit as they meet the rapid changes of the first half of the 20th century.

A small theatre shows a renowned National Film Board film: "Picturing a People" by Tlingit Director Carol Geddes, hourly. Visitors can stroll prepared trails and picnic in interpretive rest areas.

The museum gift shop replicating Johnston's 1950 general store stocks furs and Tlingit arts and crafts.
