Caetani Centre

The 125+ year-old Caetani Centre is a 6,000 sq. ft. designated heritage house, situated on 1.3 acres of land in Vernon, BC. 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.

Open to the public as a museum since July 2021, the Caetani Centre is available for both guided and self-guided heritage tours. Visitors can learn about the fascinating Caetani history and story and see treasured family artifacts as well as Sveva Caetani’s heralded Recapitulation painting series, recently returned permanently to the Caetani Centre after 35 years from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.

The Caetani Centre is also host to special festivals and events such as the lively Summer Music Festival and our annual Caetani Splash art auction and garden party fundraiser.

The Caetani Centre also offers a Self-Directed Residency Program, with accommodation and studio space for visual artists, writers, curators, and creative individuals from around Canada and beyond to explore a diverse range of art practices, theories and experiences.
