Whistler Museum

Lonely Planet review

Tracing Whistler's development from wilderness outpost to Olympic resort, quirky exhibits include a stuffed hoary marmot, a toilet-seat sailing trophy and a 2010 Olympic torch you can hold. A new permanent exhibit on skiing history was also being developed on our visit. Check ahead for events – October's adult Lego party is a must – and consider their excellent by-donation village tours (held 1pm daily, from June to August).
