Are you good at identifying people? Naming Night is back!

Naming Night may not be back at the museum, but it will be back online this week! Like previous Naming Nights, we’re seeking assistance in putting names to faces and places that appear in the Whistler area’s history. Whether you’ve been in the valley for decades or are new to the area, have lived here or visited over the years, are staying home in the valley or haven’t been back in an age, we’ll be displaying a collection of new (to Naming Night) photographs that we are searching for more information on. Help us identify your friends, family, coworkers, and anything in between!

We will be posting an album of photos on our Facebook page (find it here) at 7 pm on Thursday, September 23. Names and information can be added to each individual photo in the comment section, or you can even tag your friends in the photograph. Despite the physical distance, we hope the photos will still generate the discussions and debates about their who, what, where, when and why that we have enjoyed so much at our in-person events.

Naming Night (NOT) at the Museum: April 2021

The Whistler Museum is looking for your help again! As part of this interactive event, we’re seeking assistance in putting names to faces and places that appear in the Whistler area’s history. Whether you’ve been in the valley for decades or are new to the area, have lived here or visited over the years, are staying home in the valley or haven’t been back in an age, we’ll be displaying a collection of photographs that we are searching for more information on. Help us identify your friends, family, and anything in between!

Naming Night continues to be a little different – instead of having you all come to the museum, we’re continuing to bring the photos to you! We will be posting an album of photos on our Facebook page (find it here) at 7 pm PST on Thursday, April 29. Names and information can be added to each individual photo in the comment section, or you can even tag your friends in the photograph. Despite the physical distance, we hope the photos will still generate the discussions and debates about their who, what, where, when and why that we have enjoyed so much at our in-person events.

Naming Night is Back!

Everyone is invited to the museum to help us add names to the subjects of our mystery photos!  If you’ve got stories behind the photographs, know where they were taken, or can identify any of the people pictured, we want to know.

At our first Naming Night event we were able to add over 250 names to our photographs.  These names get added to our database, making it easier to search for people and places.  We’ll be featuring more photographs on Wednesday, September 18!
