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.
We share stories and explore the culture shaped by this mountain landscape.
