Whistler might be world-renowned for its outdoor adventure sports, however, it also offers a wonderful cultural experience for its visitors.

Visit the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre for a cultural tour, check out the Audain Art Museum’s latest art exhibits, and take a stroll through the forests of Cougar Mountain.

Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre

The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre has a daily guided tour experience offered every hour from 10am to 4pm. The exhibit tour includes a traditional welcome song, a 15-minute film, and a cedar-rope bracelet making activity. 

The tours are all guided by Cultural Ambassadors from both the Squamish and Lil’wat Nations. After the tour, visitors are welcome to revisit areas and exhibits of the museum that intrigued them.

The Cultural Centre also features permanent and temporary exhibits from the Squamish and Lil’wat Nations, as well as live demonstrations of weaving, carving, cedar prepping, and more.

Audain Art Museum

The Audain Art Museum is home to a large permanent collection as well as temporary exhibitions that change throughout the year.

These exhibits include both historical and contemporary art from leading institutions around the world, all of them created to complement their permanent collection.
