Okanagan Heritage Museum


Discover the natural and human history of Kelowna.

The Okanagan Heritage Museum offers award-winning traveling exhibits and provides a home for exhibitions of local and regional artefacts and stories curated by the Kelowna Museums Society. The galleries host some of the most engaging installations in the Central Interior of British Columbia.

Explore the Changes!

Another day, another treasure. Experience museum transformation in motion as we overhaul the entire gallery. Meanwhile, step into the oldest log cabin in Kelowna, and peer into the windows of an original “Chinatown” shop. Be inspired by the Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame, and hunt for wonderful objects and surprising stories.

This museum is also home to two important facilities: the Kelowna Public Archives and the Ursula Surtees Regional Conservation Laboratory.

Admission is by donation.
