Military Museum Society, military museum board, staff and volunteers
are combining their ongoing efforts towards achieving the common goal
of the continuing development of the Okanagan Military Museum as a
public facility. In close cooperation with our partners at the Kelowna
Museum and in coordination with city of Kelowna officials, the Okanagan
Military Museum Society have formulated plans for the museum's future
development within the historic Memorial Arena building. Currently
as part of these efforts the entrance foyer area is being renovated
to facilitate additional permanent museum display areas.
into the future we are committed to providing our dynamic contribution
to the evolution of the city of Kelowna's cultural district. In this
aim, through our mandate to tell the story of the entire region's
military heritage, we are striving for the benefit of not only the
city of Kelowna but of the entire Okanagan Valley.
Military Museum is well served by dedicated staff and volunteers who
have proven themselves by their commitment to special events, such
as the Memorial Cup, and the daily requirements of maintaining a historical
facility of this kind.
We are committed
to continuing to provide the region with a first class museum that
honours the memory of those Okanagan residents who have served their
county so well for so long.
