The Whyte Museum inspires discovery and wonder when people and the Rocky Mountains meet. Our founders, Peter Whyte and Catharine Robb Whyte, were local artists and philanthropists. Peter and Catharine wished to offer a place where people could gather and appreciate the culture and beauty of the area.

In the spirit of Peter and Catharine Whyte, the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies 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.
