This cultural museum is very informative with live talks on native snakes etc. Always a good place to take company. Reasonably priced but could be lower

I have recently relocated from Ontario to Oliver. I had family down visiting from Quebec and came across Nk’Mip Desert Cultural Centre website via the Osoyoos visitor guide. We were welcomed by the Marketing director who was very informative, insightful and passionate.

We learned a great deal and enjoyed the experience via videos and gallery walk indoors and out! Coming from Ontario and our nations capital I feel we are very kept away from learning about our history and First Nations people. I’ve lived in this area for 4 months and have learned more about First Nations and am very grateful for real talk and understanding!

I will be coming again and letting everyone I know to visit this exceptional Cultural Centre when in the area!

An absolutely stunning landscape surrounds this cultural centre. Being the off season, we had a self guided tour of the centre and the grounds. We expected to pay the regular admission but were told, because it was the off season we could tour the facility and make a donation to the centre when we were done. The short film which we saw when we first walked into the centre explained some history about the Okanagan people and the Osoyoos tribe. It was a very moving tribute to the importance of ancestors and culture. The theme of the coyote being the spiritual guide was incredibly well done. There are displays of art work, artifacts and information on animals, history, etc.. in the adjacent room. Learning that the Osoyoos tribe didn't send their children to a residential school but hired a teacher to come to them was so good to hear. When you enter the room with the campfire, there is another short film about the coyote and the salmon, a beautiful legend of the Okanagan people. The outside area must be amazing in the summer but we found it very informative and interesting. Everything was so well displayed and beautifully presented. And the landscape of the vicinity is spectacular. Loved all of the statues.

Wow, what an excellent review, well worded and complimentary. Thank you. We are happy you got to experience the centre and the exhibits. We are especially pleased that you enjoyed the films and the morals/lessons attached to them . The importance of respecting beliefs and culture is part of being in this world and being in unity.

Don’t miss out on this if you go through Osoyoos. It’s is fantastic so informative and so famous for all the right reasons. Great for all ages. So well laid out staff really no their skills and make this memorable. Great food and wine at the restaurant at this resort setting . Bring a camera to catch the memories. I enjoyed best the information on owls, snakes and wildlife that inhabit the area.
