Military history in the Okanagan: The Okanagan Military Museum is located in the Memorial Arena building in Kelowna at 1424 Ellis Street. The museum society is dedicated to the preservation of our military and naval history, often within a local perspective, as a valuable contribution to our community. Thousands of Okanagan residents have served in our country's armed services and hundreds continue to serve in our Regular or Reserve forces or have relatives in in these categories. In addition, our youth continue to have a connection to our military history either actively through participation in the Cadet movement or during Remembrance Day activities and as part of their educational development as well informed future citizens.

Museum collection: The museum has a significant collection of military artifacts such as a fine collection of military small arms, uniforms, insignia, badges and equipment.

Special exhibits and events: The museum has an ongoing program of special exhibits designed to highlight various aspects of our military history. For example, a special exhibit illustrating the role of the Canadian Forces in fighting the forest fires of 2003 will be launched this fall. The museum is also a venue for special events such as book launches and speakers presentations. Special tours for school or community groups can also be arranged.
