Kilby is a favorite of mine. The restaurant is comfortable and cozy, the food would be considered as 'home cooking' at its finest. The gift shop is small but, filled with handmade crafts, books, and goodies. The museum is filled with wonderful memorabilia, and the staff are fantastic. For a family outing, check Kilby out.

Interesting historic site, off the beaten track. We went for the Easter egg hunt, come early as it does get crowded. Not many animals to see or pat. Enjoyed the historic talk about the Kilby general store. Staff were friendly and easy going. This place is small, don't expect too much.

Went for the bald eagle festival and got a walking tour of the Kilby area. Our tour guide Jo Ann was great and very informative. Learned about the history of Kilby, Eagles and Seagulls. Worthwhile for all to go and see.

We have visited many times with guests from around the world. This trip we shared with two teenagers from Japan! They enjoyed their visit immensely. The farm animals and gift shop were their highlights.

I just returned from a scenic drive from Vancouver to Kelowna, along HWY 7 and a neighbour had recommended that I stop and see the historical farm/mill at Kilby. It was well worth the time! I couldn't get over the friendly animals! The scenery was glorious and I was impressed with the detail to the preservation of the site. It... More

This is a great little gem of a place. I loved the museum and the farm and all the farm animals. A real great place to bring the kids.

This was a very unexpected stop but we were really pleased that we made the effort to go back and see this site. It is really well done with a house and store set up that you could see no where else. Truly amazing and fun to see what life was like in earlier time.

A fabulous 1906 General Store Museum. See thousands of goods which were for sale in the early 1900s. View the attached heritage post office and hotel. The surrounding heritage farm is populated by numerous varieties of farm animals. There are farm buildings and antique farm tools and equipment to view. There is even an old fashioned outdoor playground for children.... More

My husband & I checked out the Kilby Historic Site for our second trip down to Harrison Hot Springs. Typically, we stay in Harrison and enjoy the resort/pools/beach/etc but I wanted to try something different and even *gasp* educational! It's a short 15-20 min drive from Harrison to the Kilby Site but it's a completely different place. The General Store... More
