Collections: Exhibits & Displays

Within the Museum are several exhibit cases depicting life in Lake Country. The patent medicine exhibit provides insight into medicine from years gone by; the Okanagan Indigenous artifacts case demonstrates impeccable craftsmanship. Additional Museum displays depict our lives at home and at work, telling our community story.

The Museum has remote displays at George Elliot Secondary School, Oyama Community Hall and in the lobby of the Municipal offices of the District of Lake Country at 10150 Bottom Wood Lake Road, Lake Country. Heritage Markers are located in each of the four wards of Lake Country, and along the Okanagan Rail Trail.

Our volunteers strive to create exhibits that leave you pondering about society and understanding our community.
