Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies

The Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies invites visitors to explore the culture shaped by this mountain landscape through our exhibitions, events, historic homes, archives, library and museum shop.

The Whyte Museum’s founders, Peter Whyte (1905-1966) and Catharine (Robb) Whyte (1906-1979), were local artists and philanthropists. They wished to offer a place where people could gather and appreciate the culture and beauty of the area.

In this spirit, the Whyte Museum acquires, preserves, interprets and makes accessible the history and culture of the Rocky Mountains of Canada by inspiring and cultivating the exchange of knowledge and ideas through our collections, programs and exhibitions.

Our programming is made possible through generous support from visitors, Museum Members, donors and sponsors.
