The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, in Whistler, showcases the art and heritage of the Squamish and Lil’wat aboriginal people. The Centre features a museum, modern gallery, craft activities, gift shop, café, and theatre.

The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre is an authentic cultural activity for the whole family. The range of experiences available to guests include guided tours of the museum and exhibits, singing and drumming performances, multimedia presentations, craft workshops and indigenous cuisine.
