Come visit to learn about Whistler’s history from wilderness to world-class resort. The Whistler Museum tells Whistler’s stories from early fun-loving summer lodge operators, 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.
Upcoming Programs & Events
On the Whistler Museum’s Valley of Dreams Walking Tour, you’ll uncover the early history of Alta Lake, tales behind the mountain development, and the stories behind Whistler’s journey to the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games. Learn more here.
This “pop up” museum explores Whistler’s unique natural history and includes visual displays* and on-site interpreters. Different themes and aspects of Whistler’s natural history are rotated and explored daily. Mondays through Fridays in July and August. 11 am – 5 pm.

Crafts in the Park is going virtual again this summer! The Whistler Museum and the Whistler Public Library are teaming up to present Crafts FROM the Park, offering a different craft every week from July 15 to August 26. Each Thursday we will share a video filmed in Florence Petersen Park to share a little about Whistler’s history and lead you through a craft project. You’ll find the video on our Facebook page and on our website here. Families can sign up to receive weekly craft supply packages (Sign up here) and we will also share the craft supply list for each week. Please note that these crafts may require some parental assistance.
Our guided nature walking tours will be offered digitally this year! This online tour corresponds with numbered, designated locations along the Nature Trail that starts at Lost Lake PassivHaus and includes video and images related to Whistler’s rich natural history. Find more information here.
