It's nice to have it right in town and it's free on Thursdays. They always have something interesting to look at!

When we visited there was an excellent display of high end art pieces owned by local residents. It was tastefully organized and displayed, despite the eclectic nature of the collections. There was also excellent presentations of weavings and art by local students.

Nice fairly small gallery. Very friendly and informative staff. There are kids activities on the weekends. It is a good activity for the whole family. Can't say enough positives about the staff. Good central downtown location.

I visited on my own and would likely not recommend taking children unless they are older and or very interested in art. The staff was very friendly and informative. I thought it worth the $5 fee to view some of my favorite Canadian artists though...More

I enjoyed the 'Legacy of Canadian Art' exhibit here. Very lovely. There's also a 'games and art' exhibit that is interesting. I happened to be there on a Thursday and learned that 'Thursdays are free.' There is paid parking just across the street.

The Kelowna Art Gallery is rather small - but a gem nonetheless. We visited in July and got to see a very comprehensive, well made overview of Canadian Art over 150 years and enjoyed ourselves very much. Highly recommended !
