Westbank Museum 2 - Indoors

The breeze block building at 2376 Dobbin Road was renovated in the spring and summer of 2011 to accommodate the Westbank Museum and Arts and Crafts Society’s artefacts and articles, which represent and document the pioneer history of the community. Council directed staff to complete the renovations at the municipally owned building after the society approached the District of West Kelowna in search of a location that would be more accessible and highly visible to the community and visitors.

The society leases the building from the municipality and is responsible for the museum's programs and operations. For programming information and hours of operation, please call the Museum at 250-768-0110.

Prior to 2011, West Kelowna RCMP and West Kelowna Citizen’s Patrol rented the building, until a new West Kelowna RCMP Detachment could be completed on an adjacent lot, at 2390 Dobbin Road.

The Westbank Museum opened to the public during a ceremony on August 19, 2011, with Mayor Doug Findlater, members of Council, Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart, society directors and volunteers, community members and an RCMP honour guard in attendance.

The facility was also designed to house the West Kelowna Visitor Information Centre, which is open seasonally, May to September, 7 days per week, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. To contact the West Kelowna Visitor Information Centre, please call 250-768-2712.
