Historic Kelowna Fruit Packing House Re-Opens Tonight as Museum & Cultural Center

It would be difficult to pack more local lore and historical significance into a building than you have in Kelowna's old apple barn, the freshly restored Laurel Packinghouse.
Tonight is the Grand Reopening of the Laurel, an historic and integral part of the Kelowna and Okanagan communities going back to 1918.

The new facility houses two museums, the B.C. Orchard Industry Museum and the B.C. Wine Museum, and also houses several other facilities, including an agrotourism center.

The Laurel also has multifunction space for group rentals. It is located in Kelowna's downtown arts district.
