Easily spend an hour learning about the history of the Cadet organization. A learning experience!! I wish they had some interpretive tours to invoke some interest in the visitors

Seven years in the making, the Vernon Cadet Museum houses an extensive collection of more than 2500 items related to cadet training in Canada, focusing mainly on Army Cadets because the Vernon Cadet Training Centre has housed almost 90,000 cadets in the seventy years of its cadet history (Vernon was also a major training centre during World Wars I and II). Uniforms, badges, photos, musical instruments, and maps chart the history of the centre. Recently installed air conditioning makes the building comfortable for visitors. There's even a small souvenir shop and knowledgeable guides.

If you are interested in local history, stop in at the cadet camp museum. It's small, but so interesting! They have done a great job with their displays, including personal memorabilia that will appeal to people who actually went to camp, and thematic displays that will appeal to history buffs. When we were there they had a display on food rations and one on head gear through the years, as well as the results of an 'archeological dig' that occurred when they updated some of the barracks and discovered several decades' worth of trinkets in the ground below! This is the only cadet museum in Canada and we really enjoyed ourselves.

It was a nice visit with the curator and his knowledge. He was able to describe the may different changes that has happened at the camp over the years.
