George Johnston Museum and Heritage Park is a must-see Teslin attraction named after the venerated Tlingit elder, trapper, fur trader, entrepreneur and photographer. As the Inland Tlingit met rapid changes during the first half of the twentieth century, their story remains told by George Johnston’s collection of photographs, restored 1928 Chevrolet hunting car and colorful exhibits of Tlingit ceremonial regalia.
The museum gift shop replicating Johnston’s 1950 general store stocks Tlingit arts and crafts, and small Yukon gifts. A small theatre shows films including renowned National Film Board film: “Picturing a People” by Tlingit Director Carol Geddes. Visitors can view an original 1940s Air Radio building and exhibit, stroll prepared trails or picnic in the interpretive rest areas.
