  • You should not miss this museum when visiting Whistler. It’s amazing! Watch the short movie, walk around the galleries and make your own bracelet following instructions of a friendly staff member. Top attraction!
  • Very nice place to Learn the tribe culture and ways of living. Guided tour is recommended which is free
  • A modern place about the old Squamish culture. Good and interesting exhibition.
  • Inspiring place to visit, learn and immerse.
  • What an amazing centre! We hosted an evening reception for delegates at a conference we held in Whistler earlier this month (June 2015). The staff was professional and easy to work with, especially considering our tight timelines (10 days). I was very pleased with the way they provided suggestions to make the evening one our guest would not forget. Would definitely recommend a visit.
