Since 1989 the BC Orchard Industry Museum has been a part of the Kelowna Museums Society and has served as a gateway to the Laurel Packinghouse.
Exhibitions focusing packing, processing, home preserving, picking, orchards, marketing, and awards won by BC growers, tell the story of the Okanagan Valley’s transformation from wide open cattle range to beautifully manicured, symmetrical orchards.
Since 1989, the BC Orchard Industry Museum has hosted thousands of visitors and brought a greater understanding of the Okanagan region through its exhibitions and programs. Like the Okanagan Heritage Museum, the BC Orchard Industry Museum provides the public with a full array of exhibitions, public programs, and special events. These events include lecture series, the annual Grow Local Fall Fair, industry reunions, and special exhibitions.
Admission is by donation.
