The Vernon Museum sees its role in the community to be both that of caretaker and resource centre.

(The Vernon Museum has become the recognized repository for archival material in the North Okanagan). As a resource centre and a cultural institution, it seeks ways to contribute both to the economic growth of the community through its fundraising initiatives and provide opportunities for improved quality of life for its residents through diverse education programs and social events.

  • Vernon is a small city but the museum was a delightful surprise. They have done a really good job of creating very interesting displays which really educate you to the history of the area. They have a treasure trove of all manner of objects from the past as well as the stories of many people who settled the area and their contributions. I went as I was accompanying my elderly father but I ended up enjoying it as much as him.
  • Nice curator and several blasts from the past!
  • Good place for Vernon history
