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.

You really got the sense of how "new" Whistler is and how motivated people were to bring the Olympics to the area. It is a story of love and determination and not to be missed in this cute little place.

No fee for visiting. Donations are welcome. They have some interesting memory items. Read the information and you will learn some facts you didn't know about Whistler and its history.

We weren't sure what to expect when we stopped by this museum, other than typical 'museum' displays. What we found and thoroughly enjoyed was a history of Whistler's early life, and particularly background on the 2010 Olympics and the extensive area and community efforts to...More
