This is not a museum in the same league as some of the worlds greats, but it does have a lot to offer. Good use has been made of the relatively small space, with the creation of different "rooms". It gives a great overview of Kamloops history and natural environment, and has a number of unique artifacts. There is a separate research room open for all, and a really great kids space with many hands on activities - mostly aimed at primary school aged children where you can even book parties! A great resource for Kamloops. We were happy to give our $3 requested donation for entry.

I love this museum!

There's a little bit of everything here for adults and children can spend hours playing in the different areas set aside for them.

We loved the museum, it has an amazing amount of information on the origins of the city and its people. Also has a whole floor dedicated to children, they have games and a personal museum to learn at their level

The museum is located downtown with very little parking. It has multi levels and is quite small. For a city of this size, I would expect to have a full size museum with a lot of information about the area, pioneers, industry and the province. I was very disappointed when I went in to discover parts were very well done and other sections were dingy and not interesting. Needs some serious work before I would go back.

A great place to while away an hour. Donation suggested $5. You will learn about the region with well presented history and a special room for children to play and explore. you can even dress up in old time costumes. I especially liked the recreation of a fishing resort cabin. Also wildlife samples, first nations artifacts, gemstones and more. Location is very near Riverside Park where there are daily concerts in July and August from 7 to 8:30
