Come visit to learn about Whistler’s history from wilderness to world-class resort. The Whistler Museum tells Whistler’s stories from fun-loving pioneers, to the creation of Whistler Blackcomb, to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and beyond.
We are located behind the Whistler Public Library, in the heart of Whistler Village.
Please keep in mind, we are currently limiting the number of people in the exhibit area to 8 and you may be asked to wait. Masks are required inside the museum.

Our 2021 Virtual Speaker Series is back at 7pm on Thursday, March 25 with a look at how journalism in Whistler has progressed with Paul Burrows (founder of The Whistler Question), Charlie Doyle (co-founder of the Whistler Answer), Bob Barnett (co-founder of Pique Newsmagazine), and Clare Ogilvie (current editor of Pique Newsmagazine). Whistler has been served by multiple publications despite a relatively small population, but how did it all get started?

Land of Thundering Snow is a traveling exhibit exploring the history of avalanches and snow science in Canada. It highlights the history of snow avalanches and their impact on people and nature in Canada, and revels the secrets hidden with the stillness of the snowpack and the fury of a snow slide. Learn about heartbreaking avalanche tragedies, follow the development of Canadian research in snow science and discover how an avalanche is triggered. Land of Thundering Snow will run through April 17, 2021.
