- A place to immerse yourself in history -
history, regimental stories, diaries of servicemen and women, official
documents and records, photos and reference books - its all here in
the most comprehensive military history reference facility in the Okanagan.
With a ever expanding collection of over 3,000 books the museum reference
library is a great place to start research on a history project or to
find out a little more about an aspect of military history that you
are interested in. Perhaps you need to see a photo of that particular
type of airplane for the model you're building or you might want to
find out a bit more about your grandfather's experiences in the war,
the museum archives are the best place to begin with.

not just the books that will be of assistance though. The museum staff
are there to help get you started on your search. Often, museum society
volunteers will be around to also offer their advice drawn from their
varied and extensive experiences and knowledge of military history.
