The building is beautiful, and the collections give one a real feel for what it was like here long ago. The crafts are great and the first nation homes and carvings are also very satisfying. Besides the museum visit, go for lunch in the cafe with its scenic view and local food. Also visit the gift store to buy souvenirs to take home that are not only beautiful but made in Canada!

This center offers an interesting overview of the two tribes that co-exist in the Whistler area. The art and artifacts are beautiful and well presented. As a museum buff, I enjoyed the included tour and cedar rope making craft. For my boyfriend, the tour was overkill. The museum is interesting whether you opt for self-guiding or touring.
The gift shop offers really great (and expensive) art. The cafe was delicious, but they were hosting two big tour groups so it was very noisy and there were only 3 tables crammed in a corner available for regular patrons.

We loved this museum. It did things differently, in a good way. We joined a tour and were told stories and knowledge, and we were taught to make cedar bracelets, and we were encouraged to touch some of the cultural items. Unlike other museums, this one was done in a very interactive way. It was very much staged in the present rather than the past, totally refreshing. The food at the cafe was a delicious fusion of traditional cultural foods in today's formats (tacos, paninis, etc using bannock, venison, and sockeye salmon). The gift shop had loads of merchandise from native-owned companies as well as native craftspeople. I'd definitely recommend and visit again.

This is a must if you're visiting Whistler. We went after a hard and tiring morning of snowboarding and so we were charged half price because we arrive only a few hours before closing time.
The museum is very interesting and it was great to learn about the history of the tribes and their folklore. The legend of the Thunderbird was our favourite!
When we had finished looking around, we were offered the chance to go into the longhouse and make a traditional bracelet out of Cedar bark. Then we watched a film about the history of the centre followed by a performance of a traditional song. They pulled out all the stops for us and it was greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Visited here on a one-day stopover in Whistler.
The place is definitely worth seeing, very interesting, knowledgable guides, great stories and explanations of the local culture, we even made a bark rope.
Definitely recommended!
