The Caetani Centre heritage home is about to undergo a major renovation to make the entranceway, gift shop, office, washroom, and museum accessible to visitors of all ages and mobilities, as well as mobility devices such as strollers, walkers, and wheelchairs. 

Made possible by funding through Heritage Canada’s Canadian Cultural Spaces Funds, as well as private donations and sponsors, the entrance, reception, and museum spaces will undergo revitalization.

The accessibility renovation begins in January and is expected to finish in late February or early March.

The centre will look to its re-opening in Spring 2024.

During this time, the artist studios will still be open to working artists and the Sveva Caetani Gallery will be open to public
programming and exhibits through the winter months.

The 125+ year-old Caetani Centre is a 6,000 sq. ft. designated heritage house, situated on 1.3 acres of land on lower East Hill in Vernon, BC. The facility is operated by the Caetani Cultural Centre Society as a registered not-for-profit organization and registered charitable organization. The house and grounds are owned by the City of Vernon, and operated by the Caetani Cultural Centre Society.
