We were greeted at the door by a lovely elderly woman that made us feel welcome right away! She was happy to answer questions, point out different things and have a little chat. This was such a nice little museum and I recommend a visit! Was enjoyed by our entire family...teens, adults, and seniors!
Give yourself plenty of time. There is so much to see & learn. They generously stayed open so we could stay longer. Detailed exhibits about the history & development of the town, but not so much about the Native history.

Many unique items from various historical times in that part of the Okanagan. Biographical boards were very interesting. Some lovely... 更多
