the McBride Museum in Whitehorse is currently expanding and renovating its collection--and in the process, the curator is creating a "clutterorium", a joking name for a room with shelves loaded with cool stuff. they're also making space to exhibit some of their 15,000 historical photographs. in the new extension, there's also a great series of walk-through rooms, installed with all kinds of Gold Rush souvenirs & strange artifacts. to see them, i had to step through a fair amount of sawdust and dodge some ladders, but this second photo shows my favourite installation: a Klondike-era bar that looks like a cross between Aladdin's Cave and Hernando's Hideaway.
