The museum is small but it's packed with Whistler history. Admission is by donation. We went on a rainy day, not expecting much and we were happily surprised with what it offered. Fun for kids too. Great gift shop prices.

Would highly recommend a visit to the Whistler Museum. Contains artifacts from the early days of Whistler and more recent memorabilia from 2010 Winter Games. A nice book and gift selection as well.

Small local history museum. Old photos and relics from days gone by. Admission by donation. Worth a look

Very small museum which killed a bit of time for us as we were on a short visit to the Olympic Park. Cheap to go in and has some Olympic memorabilia. Worth a visit if you come to the park.

Took my young kids in here on a rainy day and we found plenty to amuse ourselves. It is small and located by the library. The front desk person kindly gave my kids a scavenger hunt/trivia type of activity to do which involved finding the pictures on their page in the exhibits around the museum and answering a few simple...

If you think the weather is too BAD or you've already seen all the movies going on and you're too tired to go to library to borrow some books - Maybe the museum would be nice choice for you? If you've ever wondered how it all begin, this place will tell you few things what's really happened during the years.... More

Some interesting history about the hills and the settlement. Also has a number of things from the Olympics over the years and a couple good videos you can play on command. Worth the stop on an off ski day or a quick activity in the evening.

This museum is very small, but it does provide the history of Whistler, a couple of display cases with local birds, with headphones so you can hear their calls. There is an interesting little video with clips from locals on the history of Whistler, which can be heard from anywhere in the one room museum, in case the 4 chairs... More

Spent an hour or so in this museum. The weather didn't allow us to do anything else so stopped by in our way out of town. It's a nice museum with some interesting information about the history of the city and its humble beginnings. Whistler is all about the outdoors but if, for any reason, you can't go and enjoy...

We took a Grayline bus tour to Whistler for the day. The driver was very knowledgeable and pleasant and gave us much information. On the way there we stopped first of all at Horseshoe Bay just outside Vancouver for a coffee and to admire the view. The second stop was to Britannia Beach where we were able to buy a... More
