Penticton Museum and Archives
The City of Penticton’s R.N.Atkinson Museum and Archives contains over 350 animal mounts and skins. These collections are valuable to artists, naturalists and scientists as a source of species information. The Archives is also a very useful resource, containing information in written form as well as thousands of photographs that relate to the early natural history of the South Okanagan and Similkameen. Records include diaries of early settlers and weather data from newspapers and the Department of Environment. The museum offers children’s summer programmes, school programmes for all ages and grades, adult lecture series, and access to the archives and collection by appointment. This organization supports other groups via education, and as a resource centre.
