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 heard mixed reviews from my friends about this place, but we had a boring weekend planned so thought we would go over. Was kinda shocked about... More

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.

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

A great way to get up and close to what life might have been like if you were living at Harrison Mills at the turn of the century. Wonderful farm animals, friendly fun staff, delicious home-style food at the restaurant and the best souvenirs in Harrison Mills. No fooling....visit during one of their special events to get even more out... More

Have stopped here in several years ago and find this excellent small historic site to get out and explore and learn about how people lived in this area of BC in the past 100 years.
