From outside the Cultural Centre looks large and impressive. While inside it remains as beautiful and modern as you'd expect the actual exhibits are really small. The staff are helpful and even sing and perform for visitors. The movie is a nice touch since it provides personal accounts from actual Lil Wat and Squamish tribes. The exhibits complement it well afterwards but are very small and quick to go through. Even the outdoor parts only take a few minutes. It's nice that they have children's exhibits and activities and the chance to make a cedar bracelet as a souvenir is a great idea. The gift shop is also impressive if you're still needing souvenirs. I liked this attraction but you're best to do the one hour tour since it only takes you an hour anyway. There is a walking trail as well but due to a bear spotting we opted against it. This is a great way to learn about some of Canada's First Nations culture particularly for visitors short on time and from other countries.

loved the feeling of this place, lots of information from the first nations people, we had an excellent tour guide with a wealth of information, a song with a drum and then we made red cedar bracelets.I love they way the Canadians embrace the first nations people.

Spent an afternoon touring the centre. Had a guided tour, the history of the Squamish and Lil'wat people and how they have survived and lived together was very interesting.
