The Westbank Museum houses artefacts and articles, which represent and document the pioneering era of the community's history.
The museum is located at 2376 Dobbin Road and is also home to the West Kelowna Visitor Information Centre.
The building was last substantially renovated in 2011 with the City of West Kelowna funding major facility upgrades and museum volunteers constructing and arranging displays throughout the building.
The Westbank Museum and Arts and Crafts Society manages the day to day operations of the Westbank Museum and its staff and volunteers care for artefacts and articles housed inside the facility.
The City of Kelowna owns and maintains the building and provides rental space at an affordable rate for the society.
