Well worth a tour as lots of free parking and admission by donation. The present building is housed in an old curling rink but is very well displayed with lots of historic old farming machinery for processing fruits and wines. Every aspect of the history...More

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.

We were quite disappointed when we went to tour the museum, and found that they charge per pertson was $5.00. We had a lovely talk with the very elderly volunteer, but did not go in. But, right next door is a lawn bowling facility, it...More

What a sorry bunch of crap housed in that shabby building. What do wartime uniforms and resources have to do with Osoyoos?! Does Osoyoos really need a museum? It's a pass. Don't bother.

Many unique items from various historical times in that part of the Okanagan. Biographical boards were very interesting. Some lovely local art. I had hoped to see more about the Nk'Mip people, so carried on to the cultural centre. Friendly and helpful volunteer staff.
