Be a part of history!

Museums connect communities past and present

Join the Kelowna Museums Society and keep history alive through exhibitions, programming, collections, conservation, and research. Our vision is to inspire a community to be alive with its history – connecting people and place.

Imagine a community alive with its history

Kelowna Museums Society keeps history alive through exhibitions, programming, collections, conservation, and research. This is a time of renewal at the museums, as witnessed by a gallery overhaul, new programs for families and seniors, and new stories to tell. With your help, we will have more impact and more reach.
