Nk’Mip Desert Cultural Centre

Horse Statue

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.
