Great little museum of the history and development of skiing at Whistler and how the Olympics came there in 2010. Also features on the natural history of the area. They suggest a 5$ donation which is well worth it. Very enjoyable. Plan for about 45...More

This place is such a cool place to get to know Whistler! So much information and it's tucked in a little corner by the library and a mini park! Super peaceful in the park! Hyper local spot that isn't very busy most of the time!...More

The museum is not that large and the entry fee is in the form of a donation request- minimum of 5.00. The Museum itself is heavy on coverage of the decades long effort of Whistler to host the Winter Olympics. It also covers the pioneers...More

See this if you have ample time and some interest in local sports. It is a small museum that can be done in 45 mins or so.

I would recommend anyone who is interested in local history of whistler and surrounding area. The storyboards where beautifully put together. The museum brought me back to my childhood skiing in the whistler area.

This is a lot smaller than what we were expecting, especially after the Olympics. Thought this would be a great venue (bigger) if recent Olympic history and paraphernalia was included. Although admission is by donation, it is really small and takes no time to visit....More

This is a sort of a mini-museum. It's charming & gives a little history of the town of Whistler. It, like the other 2 museums/cultural centers in Whistler is a good, short indoor activity.
