The museums of the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast are known for their sizeable, often eclectic, collections of gold rush, pioneer and cowboy artifacts.
Make sure to visit Barkerville Historic Town – it's one of BC's premiere attractions. Its large townsite and costumed interpreters create a feel for what life was like during the 1800's gold rush.
Learn about legendary bronco-riding cowboys at the Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin. Or discover Lillooet's history of First Nations, pioneers, prospectors and ranchers.
The Quesnel Museum and Archives explores farming, logging and mining, while the Wells Museum recalls the second Cariboo gold rush.
