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.

The curator does an amazing job of the exhibits, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Love the log cabin downstairs!

The museum exhibits were well arranged for the small space available. More interpretive signage would have been nice to give more context to the collections and displays. Large area downstairs for children but the space doesn't seem to be well used. Would like to see...More
