Step back in time at the historic Lake Country Museum!Established in 1985, the Museum is located in the former Okanagan Centre School. Through its exhibits and archives, the Museum tells the story of the District of Lake Country and its four wards of Winfield, Oyama, Carr’s Landing, and Okanagan Centre. The Museum’s artifacts include the histories of the orchard, wine, and ranching industries, turn of the century living, and collections from the early Japanese community.

This former school house, presently a local museum is located across Lake Okanagan in beautiful Okanagan Centre on the lake, featuring life in this pitoresque community from years gone by. Well worth visiting with a visit to the beach and marina after

Local museum with changing feature displays. Check for open hours during the fall/winter. Old historical schoolhouse converted to museum with excellent local content. A must-see stop during your winery tour!
