Where are we going today?

Did you know that Whistler is not just a beautiful place to visit, but there is also SO much to learn on it's history and culture too - and a trip to the Whistler Museum is the best place to learn all about it!

The Whistler Museum tells stories of the local history that are great to read about knowing everything happened right under where you're standing! Kids can learn all about the history of the fun loving pioneers, right through to the famous 2010 Olympic Games.

Have you ever wanted to have your photograph taken with a REAL life Olympic torch? Well, not is your change to find out!

Whilst and educational and informative day out with the kids, the museum does have a fun, light-hearted tone that is aimed at families, and of course kids. There are fun interactive exhibits that make learning fun for the kids, as well as kids activity books!

They also have something very intriguing called the Tickle Trunk....and you just need to head over to the museum to see what THAT is all about!

Kids can learn a lot about the local history at the Whistler Museum too, and you'll be surprised how much incredible history there is! Here, the focus is largely on those iconic black bears, which is a surprisingly striking experience. 

So why not take the kids to enjoy a fun day of learning at this fascinating museum, and unearth a whole new side of Whistler you might not have known!

Enjoy that tickle trunk, kids!
