  • The museum/info center is situated in an old church. There are some artifacts outside the museum/info center and the inside is full of interesting and important historical pieces. I had a photo taken inside an old jail cell, complete with bunk bed cots. I enjoyed the downstairs area which had a historical printing press, old newspapers and things like that. The main floor had a lot of things from the gold mining days, tools, and stuff. The stop isn't a long one, you could probably see everything in 15-30 minutes give or take a bit. The visitors info center people were the best. Betty and Tarryn were so patient with answering all our questions and had some tips for interesting places for us to check out, where to eat, and so on. Yes, Lillooet is a small town and it may not have been hard to find some of the info on our own, but learning about where the osprey nest is, or the best place to look for other forms of wildlife, or where the hidden hiking trail is for the best view of the lake... That's the cool stuff that only locals would know.
  • Interesting artefacts to look at here. Great place for a break on the drive from Jasper to Vancouver
  • Went here for the visitor center. Free wifi and the girls working there are super helpful and friendly.
  • a small but nice place
  • Nice staff
