Nk’Mip Desert Cultural Centre
The spectacular Nk’Mip Desert Cultural Centre (pronounced in-ka-meep) is the Okanagan’s newest family tourism destination.
The state-of-the-art interpretive centre is an architectural marvel sensitively constructed into a hillside. Extensive indoor and outdoor exhibit galleries create a fun, interactive learning environment with hands-on displays, education stations and two multi-media theatre experiences.
Discover the fascinating stories of Canada’s only desert and share in the rich living culture of the Okanagan people.
July 8th 2015 update: Unfortunately our Salmon/Fishing Tours are on hold until the salmon come up the rivers into Osoyoos Lake. The heat of the water is causing major delays and potential loss of the run. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
ECO-TOURS WITH KEN ARE STILL AVAILABLE TO BE BOOKED — SEE THE BANNER BELOW AND BOOK TODAY!
