    The Audain provides an oasis of quiet in the bustle of the Whistler ski resort. Its gorgeous building houses an eclectic collection of art by First Nations as well as contemporary modern art. Very nicely presented in beautiful light. I loved in particular the paintings by Emily Carr.

    Really enjoyed this little museum! It helped me understand how Whistler is different than Vail, for instance, and contextualize what Whistler is specifically known for. I like the bird, geology, and cultural parts. You can sit in one of the first gondolas, and it makes a great photo opp.

    It’s pretty quick to visit, maybe 30 minutes. The museum is free, and works off donations. Luckily they accept credit card donations, so currency was not an issue. I did deduct one star because there were a couple of funny things with the exhibits. The geology exhibit prompted you to look through a stereoscope but there wasn’t one. Also, there was an Olympic torch, but you couldn’t really get it out because of how a TV was mounted. There also seemed an over-emphasis on a WHistler-themed comic strip. Not sure why that would be quite so prominent.

    MA - WARNING. Right when you walk in the lobby, there are posters of the famous whistler hippie photo where the ski bums (both guys and girls) are totally naked. Nothing is blurred. There was also a book cover of bare-bottomed girls on skis. Just this gift shop area was not ok for kids. Everything else within the exhibit seemed ok.

    As you walk into the gallery it's like the art and sculptures are telling you the story before your eyes. We were completely fasanated by it all especially the jewellery and art pieces.
