The Oliver & District Museum is housed in the old BC Provincial Police building, a heritage location built in 1924. Learn about the South Okanagan’s unique ecosystem; local mining, ranching, agriculture, and law and order; and the culture and resilience of the Syilx Okanagan people who continue to call this place home. Then step back in time by entering the Fairview Jail, one of the few remaining intact buildings from our gold mining past. Afterward, roam the fully wheelchair-accessible paths of our Heritage Garden and learn about the landscape, Syilx culture, and the native and introduced plants of the area.
