On a hot July day, we opted to try out a walking tour of the murals around Vernon. The cost is a donation to the museum - a great place to support. Our tour guide, Gabe, was enthusiastic and very knowledgable. He obviously loves his job and the area he studies. He was also not afraid to say he did... More

Last December I had the pleasure of visiting Belfast, Northern Ireland, and saw the many political and historical murals around the city, on both sides of the divide. When I came to Vernon, the first thing that I thought was that this is the Canadian Belfast(mural wise) Brilliantly painted murals about the history, industry, cultures, modern multiculturalism and patriotism to...

Enjoyed the walk to see all the murals, stopped in to a local pub for a refreshing drink and shopped in unique stores . The easy to follow guide is found all over Vernon.

Well with the wander around the downtown to explore the almost 30 murals that adorn the walls of downtown and tell the tale of Vernon Definitely better to do as a walking excursion rather than by car, as there are often hidden pieces of the murals around the corner of the wall. The art is really spectacular, especially as the... More

Having been new arrivals to the Vernon area, we were happy to see the beautiful murals created throughout the downtown core area. They totally tell the story of the history of both Vernon and the surrounding area. I read a previous review comparing them to the ones depicted in Chemainus and yes these ones are totally unique to here. I... More

The murals are very well done, with many hours of volunteer work put into them, and have some interesting stories behind them

Murals are beautifully painted on different walls in downtown Vernon. I walked across the downtown core one evening. I applaud Vernon for trying to embellish their downtown with those murals like they did in Chemainus, BC, but is is no Chemainus. Chemainus is a little town on Vancouver island which started painting murals some decades ago. If you have the... More
