  • This is a fantastic museum in the heart of downtown Kelowna. There are many interesting exhibits. The native history and winter house are exceptionally good. I have been on multiple field trips over my years as a parent and every class that comes enjoys this part of the visit most of all. The kids even get to climb out of the top of the winter house. Wonderful staff, they are well informed and very friendly. They work both at this museum and the military museum down the street. They are very good with young kids and also with teens.
  • Lots of fun to explore! Tiny, and doesnt take long to tour but wonderful displays make up for it. I wish there had been a better gift shop area but otherwise everything was quite enjoyable! Entry by donation.
  • Best show in town. Great for taking kids and the family as they come through town. The museum is worth a revisit as the display are always changing.
  • I enjoyed myself a lot here, yes it is not very big but the exhibits are well put together. I really enjoyed being able to walk into the cabin and seeing the actual store front. It is a nice way to spend the afternoon.
  • Good amount of heritage items. Was hoping to see more First Nations representation.
