Admission to Barkerville Historic Town

Regular admission includes entrance to site for the day.

About this experience

We are experiencing temporary technical issues with our online admissions booking engine. We have removed the 400 guest limit at the park, so you do not need to book tickets in advance to secure a spot. Same day walk-up admission tickets are available at Barkerville's Visitors' Reception Centre. Masks required in all indoor spaces.

Billy Barker’s legendary gold strike on Williams Creek triggered a multi-billion dollar industrial revolution that literally built a province. Today, the extraordinary historic town of Barkerville stands as a living testament to BC’s golden beginnings. With its unique streetscape of more than 125 heritage buildings, period displays, satellite museums, restaurants and shops there is still so much to explore.
