About The Museum & Archives of Vernon
The Museum & Archives of Vernon (MAV) is an active and enthusiastic civic partner in the vibrant, diverse North Okanagan community. MAV is dedicated to encouraging a deeper understanding of the Greater Vernon area through stories, objects, exhibits, archives, and shared experiences.

Commitment to Diversity
The past may not change, but our understanding of it does, especially when we make the effort to connect with aspects of the past in all its diversity. Stories that have been silenced, neglected or misconstrued are of great importance at the MAV, particularly those belonging to the syilx people of the Okanagan Nation at Head of the Lake (nk’maplqs).

We are also committed to representing more robust and authentic histories of a greater diversity of individuals and communities in the North Okanagan. The process of diversifying the collection, the archives, and the programs of MAV is one that will take time, patience, and partnership with several local communities – and it is a process that enlivens and inspires all the work we do.

The Museum and Archives of Vernon is committed to exploring and advancing Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion principles in our workplace. We have a clear mandate from our Board of Directors and Executive to strive for a greater diversity in how individuals and communities are represented in our exhibits, permanent collection, and archival documents.
