“Kilby Museum”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

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.

“Small place”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

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.

“Walking tour”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

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.

“Another Great Visit!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

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.

“Worth Stopping To See!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

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 was quite fun to look through all of the antique products in the General Store. The admission fee was 9.00 CDN, but worth it! We also enjoyed a delicious lunch in the restaurant (FRESH Egg Salad Sandwiches and Lentil Soup) and took our time perusing the gift shop. The staff was very friendly and the restroom facilities were clean and well maintained. It was a pleasure to stop by and I look forward to taking other friends there next summer!
