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.

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

This place is about 5 minutes from our cabin so we come regularly in the summer. The kids love playing with the animals and the restaurant is delicious (particularly the baked goods). They often have speciality brunches for holidays (ie. Mother's Day). If you are camping in the area or driving by while on a road trip, it's definitely worth... More

Not much to see, they really don't get going until after Victoria Day. The scenery in the area is beautiful.

Went on a tour as part of the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival (fvbef.ca) This event is held the 3rd week-end every November. Had a 1.5hr boat tour of the Harrison River. Saw over 400 Eagles! Toured the nearby Kilby Historic Site and had an amazing lunch. Truly a breathtaking natural spectacle occurs every year in this area of British... More

We stopped into Kilby for a look-about on a recent (late-September) trip to Harrison. It was still rather early in the morning (before 11am), and a Tuesday, so we did not expect anything to be open (as was indicated on their website). We have been into Kilby quite often over recent years, and have visited the various attractions -- general... More

Visitors to the Harrison Mills are MUST stop at the Kilby Historic site & step into the past. This museum is filled with authentic artefacts, some rare, that tell stories of the early days in this rural area. Walk the grounds, see the farm animals, browse the gift shop & have a piece of home made pie in the cafe.... More
