Welcome to the Whistle Stop

The Whistle Stop Gallery is the showcase for the work of over 50 Robson Valley artists and artisans.
We're located in the Heritage Railway station at First and Main, in McBride, BC. (That's in the scenic Robson Valley-midway between Prince George and Jasper on Highway 16!) One of the Robson Valley’s top indoor attractions, the Whistle Stop has seen tens of thousands of visitors from around the world since it's founding in 2000.

In addition to showing the amazing diversity of work from the Valley, the Gallery brings revenue into the Valley with sales for artists, as well as creating jobs and giving youth work experience.

The Gallery also serves residents of the Robson Valley as the main outlet for locally made gifts and products, as well as maintaining the waiting room for people traveling by train.

Take a break from the Yellowhead Highway and stop in for a visit.
