We did the tour which was $14 without tax each. The tour runs on the hour. We were given lots of information on the different tribes of people. The history and how their ways are today.

To learn about the First Nations that have lived on this land for generations from those same First Nations (rather than as curated by the colonizers) is a powerful experience. But don’t worry, you won’t walk away feeling guilty, just better informed. The centre is well laid out, with easy to consume information, and the building itself is stunning. Highly recommend that you take the tour (thank you Travis). There is more to whistler than shopping and eating and skiing.

Anyone who is interested in the fascinating history of 2 of the First Nation people should not miss this venue. The guided tour, including a short film and craft lesson is excellent for all ages. There is a gift shop which offers superb 'presents' at varying prices, infact something for everyone. The cafe offers a variety of meals which are good..

As part of a senior's group tour of the centre, I enjoyed our tour and particularly our guide, Bill. He was so full of heartwarming stories and beautiful rich information about everything in the centre. We all got to dance to his singing and laugh at his delightful humour and he showed us how to make cedar bracelets! What a great tour guide you are Bill!
The building is a beautiful LEED building, the gift shop full of gorgeous First Nation pieces of art and the cafe has delicious offerings elegantly presented.
Overall, a very exquisite home to First Nations treasures and peoples, graciously shared with each visitor. I hope to sometime revisit the centre and enjoy the welcoming embrace of the First Nation culture.
Thank you for a memorable tour, Bill. (and the cedar rose you made).

I visited the Cultural Centre during my visit to Whistler, as a "rainy day" activity and am glad that I did. The first nations guide for the tour did an excellent job of introducing us to the different aspects of the Lil'Wat and Squamish nations history, lives and cultures. The guided tour and craft activity is under an hour, however you can spend your own time in the exhibits (and cafe and gift shop).
