Kilby gives you a unique view into the pioneering history of BC. Situated in one of the most beautiful corners of BC and close to Vancouver, it's a super day trip where you get to learn about some of BCs remarkable history through the story of the Kilby and Harrison families.

We always enjoy the quaintness of Kilby. The food is homemade and fresh, just like home. There is so much history and crafts to purchase for family and friends.

The Historic Site itself was amazing! If you enjoy exploring historic buildings you will LOVE this location! Lots to explore and learn! In addition there is an adorable... More

This is a good local attraction especially if you are into Canadian history. The little farm is great for children and the exhibits will keep the adults occupied for quite awhile. We did not have time for lunch in the restaurant but I understand it is very good. A little pricey for what it is but worth it to save... More

It is a good attraction as I am a history buff and love the old heritage buildings and railway history. We took the family in October and had a really enjoyable day. Kids enjoyed the small petting zoo and the walk through the haunted house, done up each Halloween.

We went out on a Wednesday so it wasn't busy either in the restaurant or museum. I highly recommend a visit here as there is so much history involved. The food was excellent and plentiful, the museum so interesting and the animals were safe and friendly. We'll go back for sure.

First visit with our 6 yr old grandson. Nice enough but boring for him. Great to see history preserved but just not enough for a long drive out there.

Being local by living in Chilliwack I thought it would be cool to go to kilby I launch my car topper boat at their beach site but I never went inside the museum.

I've been here now about 5 times and just love the old charm of the place. My daughter loves to feed the animals (You must buy their food for .50/bag and it's good for all of them). I love history and how they've kept the place up so you can imagine how a hotel was run way back when. You... More
