Gateway to the Rockies Exhibition

We want your input and feedback on a permanent (ten year life) exhibition that we are planning to open at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies in the spring of 2012. This blog reveals concepts and stories that we may include in the exhibition. Tell us what you think of those concepts and stories and let us know how you think we could make this exhibition more interesting.

Tell us what you like, what you don't like, and what you find most interesting.

Listen to Michale Lang (Executive Director, Whyte Museum), discussing
the Gateway to the Rockies exhibition:

The Gateway to the Rockies exhibition will present a brief history of the Canadian Rockies. It is designed to introduce visitors to the art, history and culture of the Canadian Rockies.

Throughout the exhibition, key figures and critical moments in Rocky Mountain history will be used to shape the narrative. These individuals represent men and women from diverse ethnic, cultural, and social backgrounds – from prominent socialites to ordinary people. The individual stories of these alpine adventurers, hunters of peace, and artistic eyes make it possible to highlight the richness of their time; their context enables a fresh reading of this place and its resonant past.

The stories of individuals will bring the story of the Canadian Rocky Mountains alive for our visitors who, through our research, indicate that they want to learn about and experience more personal stories of the Rocky Mountains. The individuals we chose embody the spirit of this place.
