Whistler Museum & Archives

A great activity for kids! With an "exhibit passport" in hand they can explore the Museum and get to know Whistler's history- once they have completed their passport, they can bring it to the front desk for stamping and then take it home with them. Your little ones can also head over to the colouring area and try their hand at one of the unique historical Whistler pages.

The Whistler Museum traces Whistler's beginnings as a pioneer society and summer resort in the early 1900s, through the development of the mountains and Olympic bids, all the way to present day. Find yourself with questions? The friendly staff is experienced with children's programming and is always happy to help visitors understand Whistler's unique past.

Two new weekly activities running in July and August for kids:

Crafts in the Park runs July 8, 15, 22, 29 and August 5, 12, and 19 from 10-11am. Each week we will talk about different ways in which we connect to Whistler. It could be nature, history, stories or transport. We will begin with a story and informative activity under the story tree, and then enjoy creating a craft together. In each of the seven sessions we will highlight one of Whistler's connections. This is a free, drop-in program for children ages 4 to 12 years with a caregiver. We will meet in Florence Peterson Park, behind the Museum and Library.

The Discover Nature Program runs every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10am - 4pm in July and August. The program includes a Discover Nature Station at Lost Lake and a Discover Nature activity booklet for kids. The Discover Nature Station will operate under a tent just outside the concession by Lost Lake Beach. Highlights include a manned touch table showcasing a wide range of Whistler's amazing nature as well as demonstrations that people can drop in and interact with throughout the day. The Station also serves as a starting point for scheduled nature walks and other family activities, encouraging face-to-face engagement with nature.
