The Whistler Museum is a unique museum that provides itself on showing visitors a side of Whistler they never knew. The museum showcases Whistler’s stories from the fun-loving pioneers, to the creation of Whistler Blackcomb, to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. There are a few interactive exhibits that let visitors dress up or touch pieces of Whistler’s history.
The museum has a mural painted on one side. The mural was painted by local artist Kris Kupskay who features Whistler’s most famous pioneer, Myrtle Phillip, who built Rainbow Lodge in 1914.
The museum also offers a number of regular guided walking tours of the historic points of interest around the resort area, nature hikes, craft programs for kids, and educational seminars.
