This is one of my favourite places in BC. See history come alive in this gold-rush, historic town. Actors stay in character when you ask them questions, and some of the actors have been there for many, many years! Good lunch options. Although I've never been, I keep hearing how good the Chinese restaurant is. Inexpensive sandwich, soup and other... 更多
It's been a few years since we have visited this historic site. Not disappointed at all. The people who keep care of this treasure should be applauded. From the actors to the service staff this site would languish. This was quick getaway for me and my husband. We live relatively close in Cariboo terms, 3 hour drive, from Barkerville. We... 更多
Took a group here after a loooong canoe paddle. Everyone had a lovely time. Something for pretty much everyone. Candy store to blacksmithing to horses to lunch.

The highlights were the tours and re- enactments of historical events - particularly the Tour of Barkerville, the Historical Tour of Chinatown, the Court Session and The Waterwheel show. Top notch actors with great... 更多
We lucked out to have a quiet day without crowds, and really enjoyed the unhurried trip through many of the homes and buildings. The presentations in the rooms and old stores and hotels was well done and the sign boards were informative. We enjoyed the street theater and the 'show' at the mine water wheel. The admission is good for... 更多
The history of Barkerville itself is amazing and the old buildings and displays make you feel as if you've stepped back in time. Most of the buildings have a gate where the door is and what you can see is limited. But the town is worth the visit.
