Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We did this on our last day, it's a suggested donation of $5/person and you'll need a couple of hours to get round it all.

Great mix of topics, from the local flora and fauna, to the history of the area and obviously the 2010 Olympics.

Well worth a quick visit if you've got some spare time on your hands

The whole story is certainly there, but the often information-dense panels are sometimes a challenge to navigate. The museum's layout, despite some floor arrows, is not particularly intuitive. Nonetheless, we enjoyed our visit and found it very informative.

Great place to gain insight of the history around this place/area.
I first came to Whistler in 1976 when there was only a little tin box gondola and Blackcomb didn't exist. Just the Creekside base with gravel parking lots. Had to take a T-Bar for the last leg to the summit. This museum will give you great insight into how the valley and ski area came into existence. +++

Small scale museum full with artefacts and displays around how Whistler developed as a skiing resort. And did multiple bids to host the Olympics, finally successful in 2010. Fascinating stuff.

The museum is very cute! I was glad I visited. They have a whole section about the Olympics and other sporting events that have been held. They also have the history of Whistler and animals from the area. I even learned how Whistler got its. And the staff was nice, I didn't realize I had gotten there about 15 minutes before they actually opened but they let me in anyways. It's a good place to spend a bit of time if it's raining or something.

Has videos of area mountain's snow slides, first gondola, birds, animals, history of Whistler. But for the years of existent of this town there should be more pictures of people, building the lifts, winter expo skiers, and better location in this village, should be in the Centre easier to find!

Very interesting olympic history but so very little on EARLY history before 1950 and there was real history then, whether they have it documented for the area? Or not...

Although I am from Quebec and never experienced the beginnings of Whistler and Blackomb as ski resorts, I can relate because I grew up in the fifties and sixties in Quebec skiing in the Laurentians. The ski culture was the same; live to ski! I saw my old skis from the 60's on display. It was a short visit and an interesting one.

As a part-time volunteer in a small museum, I understand how community-based small museums can sometimes struggle to tell their story.

The Whistler Museum doesn't. The artefacts and displays are a good mix, with plenty of information about the landscape, the fauna, First Nations, the development of the area, and Whistler as a ski destination.

Well worth and hour or two of your time.

For a community-based museum, this place delivers on a lot of stories and history: the Olympics, of course, but also the founding of the community, its economic history, and some wonderful people profiles. The displays are easy to read and eclectic in design, with a sly humour running through many of them. If you're in Whistler for any length of time, it's well worth a visit.
