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.
Upcoming Programs & Events
Our 2021 Virtual Speaker Series will be kicking off at 7pm on Wednesday, February 17 with Whistler Pride: A Look Back with Dean Nelson. The Whistler Pride & Ski Festival has taken place in Whistler for almost 30 years (under a couple different names) and we’re taking a look back at how it started and how it has grown with one of its long-time organizers Dean Nelson.
You can attend our 2021 Speaker Series events on Zoom for free by registering here or contacting us at the Whistler Museum. Events feature interviews with our speakers followed by a live (virtual) Q&A.
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 March 31, 2021.
