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.

Great small town museum. Lots of local history. Good for locals and tourists. Right downtown, near restaurants and the park.
