Introducing Whistler Cultural Connector
It’s easy to only see Whistler as a destination for thrill seekers and fitness junkies. But when you look a little deeper you’ll see that there is a thriving arts and culture scene in our small town. To help guide you Whistler has created the Cultural Connector path to offer a scenic stroll that links all cultural institutions and the public art amongst them. You will see the flags and signs around the village. You can join the path at any point and they will guide you along your way.
Our local museum is a treasure trove of local Whistler history and artifacts. From it’s humble beginnings as a small fishing retreat, to our current world-class resort, our museum will get you caught up on all the Whis-tory you need to know.
More than just a home for books, our Library is a local hub for cultural events. They regularly host events where you can learn from local creators and adventurers.

From its gallery lobby, to its amazing theatre, the Maury Young Arts Centre is one of the core locations on the Cultural Connector. Be sure to check out their events listing before your visit so you can secure tickets to one of their amazing shows.
Audain Art Museum

Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre
Whistler has a history that reaches much farther into the past than when the first skiers took to our slopes. In a visit to the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre you can learn about the living history of the indigenous people of the area.
