No fee for visiting. Donations are welcome. They have some interesting memory items. Read the information and you will learn some facts you didn't know about Whistler and its history.

We loved this little museum. It gave a fantastic insight into how and why Whistler Blackcomb began. We hadn't planned on touring the museum, we had just wanted to purchase a poster of the first trail map. My son has a poster of the current...More
