gvma prepares for 
re-opening…

 

Summer 2020 – At this time, the exhibit space in GVMA is not yet open to the public, as we are under construction. We anticipate being opening to the public, by appointment, in late August or early September.

The Archives are open to the public by appointment. You can also join us on weekly Heritage Field Trips and twice-weekly Historic Mural Tours.

We look forward to moving into the next phase of re-opening and opening the museum to visitors soon!

SHARING HISTORY THROUGH COMMUNITY

 

 

summer 2020 heritage field trips!

 

Be a tourist in your own town or take summer guests on small group tours of fascinating heritage sites. Discover more about the history of our area while visiting beautiful locations in the North Okanagan.

Friday, August 21: Heritage Field Trip to Caetani Cultural Centre. Learn more about the fascinating and elusive Caetanis, a family of eccentric Italian nobility who settled in Vernon in 1921. The father, a duke and prince, abdicated his royal titles and his place in Italian parliament to relocate to Canada. After he passed away, the mother and daughter went into near-total seclusion in this house on Pleasant Valley Road. Join a small group tour of the grounds to hear more of the stories, rumours, and lore of the Caetani family and their legacy. Suggested donation of $10 adult, $5 child/student/senior. ONLY TWO SPOTS LEFT. Register here!
