My boyfriend and I loved walking around, viewing all the artifacts. We actually learned a lot about Kamloops here. Certainly worth a visit, especially for tourists staying right down town as we were.

We go once a week...the lower floor is the children's museum and is hands on. My son loves it. The exhibits on all floors are well displayed and the entry fee is by donation.

Nice space, good location, entrance via donation, but could use more 'stuff' in the museum, I found it rather lacking for a city that size.
