Art and artifacts are alive in Indigenous culture – embodied and expressed by the living people, who carry the knowledge of their ancestors and share it with you, year-round.

Lively interaction with Indigenous culture sharers will breathe life into your museum experience.

Explore traditional craft and storytelling in the territory of Squamish Nation, archaeological sites revealing historical pithouses in Lillooet, exhibits of traditional shamanic regalia in Nisga’a territory, and the private offerings of Indigenous artisans at coastal galleries.

The Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre is a three-story, 30,400-square foot award-winning cultural centre designed to blend the traditional Squamish Longhouse with the Lil'wat Istken. Cultural Ambassadors share their knowledge and stories with guests, on a guided tour, augmenting the information shared throughout the centre's curated collection of artifacts and contemporary pieces. Traditional drum songs are shared at the top of each hour. The facility is designed to evoke a traditional Squamish longhouse and a Lil'wat Istken (pit house) and is surrounded by dramatic mountain scenery. This thriving cultural centre shares meaningful experiences, educating all, and lifts their two distinct cultures. We occasionally close early for private events, for up-to-date hours slcc.ca/visit
