All reviews first nations gift shop guided tour bannock short film cultural experience welcome song long house totem poles beautiful building venison great museum great insight on display for sale entrance fee well worth the visit
We were well received and did a guided tour with a very pleasant young man however were the only members of the" group" and found the exhibition a little disappointing. This may well change as other items are added and on a wet or rainy...More
Our family really enjoyed this facility. You receive an hour-long tour where you watch a short movie, witness traditional singing and learn to make a cedar bark bracelet. Then you can spend as much time as you like looking at all the artifacts. The history...More
It was great opportunity to learn something about the Squamish people. Before my visit in Whistler I knew nothing about them. Visiting the Center has helped me to learn about Squamish culture, history and present day. This center is not big but consists an essence...More
The art, the information, the food and the gift shop are all worth the visit. Even better are the outdoor exhibits and the relaxed atmosphere for exploring with children. I have been here several times and the experience has always been positive and enlightening.
We wandered here from the village, and spent just under two hours exploring the exhibits. Our two young children liked a few of the hands on activities (ex drums, a canoe to sit in), but there wasn’t quite as much for them to do as...More

The food is fresh, high quality ingredients and really tasty...More

We really enjoyed our time here and would like to return as we were on a schedule with a tour and could easily have spent another hour or two there. Our First Nstion guide was excellent and I feel I learned a lot in a...More
This is the first winter doing this and it’s only done two nights a week. You get to roam the cultural center before and after the dinner show. I have been coming to Whistler over 20 years and you can not get a better meal...More

There is still a movie which is very informative and interesting, but the eagle flight was not part of this presentation. We found the knowledge and thought provoking stories of the guided tour made for a great appreciation of the first nations local history, and would definitely visit again when in the area.
