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
