    Interesting artifacts and provides interesting history of the area. Friendly staff. Admission by donation - suggested $5/person. Good way to get out of the heat or rain for a few hours.

    Albeit small in size, I found it worth visiting Father Pandosy Mission. It does showcase a wide variety of Old Agricultural and Technical tools as well as the way that people lived. Easy access and not too crowded

    We have lived in Kelowna for 10 years and this was our first visit. Shame on us.
    Small galleries have a certain charm. They do not come across as imposing, as big museums do. They also present other than the masters, so are a little easier to appreciate.
    This gallery met these criteria and we enjoyed our visit. The focus was on Canadian artists and some of the works were lovely and some were quirky. Not all met with our admiration, but we enjoyed being exposed to the variety. There was a separate gallery dedicated to the grizzly bear, and a third exhibit showing interviews about racism. We preferred the Canadian artists' exhibit.
    We were greeted pleasantly and will be back. We concluded our Sunday afternoon with a pleasant walk along the waterfront and a coffee at an outdoor patio. Great afternoon.

    this is in the artist home and yard. Geert Maas does really interesting bronze work as well as acrylic, lacquer and oil painting. It was a wonderful experience viewing his work and being able to ask the artist questions. Take the time to go see this. It is very interesting.

    The museum is divided into a Wine and Orchard Section. It has nice exhibits and staff try to make your visit memorable. The bee hive is interesting and history and how to make ice wine informative. If you have and hour or two a great way to spend it.

    Always interesting stuff going on. Went to see a "paddling" film fest about kayaking and canoeing. Great venue.

    We found this to be a terrific Museum for those interested in Canadian history and military artifacts of all kinds, and if you like museums, they are only a couple of blocks from the Okanagan Heritage Museum which features regional history as well as fossils and artifacts from prehistoric times, and many other interesting items as well

    Hambleton Galleries is always a fun spot to drop into and see what is new. The staff are always gracious, and the openings are welcoming and tasteful. The Gallery manages a diverse and quality collection ... lots of good quality local scenes and local artists.

    Interesting, restored heritage site highlighting the fruit packing industry in Kelowna. The display of equipment regarding the history of the fruit growing, picking and packing was most interesting. There is a lovely gift shop and interesting information about the history of the area’s wineries. The main part of the building has interesting architecture and an amazing beamed ceiling....available as an event venue. Lots of parking close by.

    We went on a hunt to find this place and finally asked a shop owner in the area who told us this has been closed for at least 5 years :(

    Found it on TripAdvisor and glad a decided to look it up. A little gem that displays local arts and has a great selection. A must for those who likes smaller galleries or just want to see what this lovely place has to offer.
