The city was founded in the 14th century around Kirillo-Belozerskii Monastery as a sloboda (tax-exempt settlement) belonging to the monastery. In 1775 the sloboda was made a city. Beginning in 1776, Kirillov was made an administrative center of a district.

The modern city has a creamery and a cultural educational school. The Historical-Architectural and Art Open-air Museum is located on the territory of the former Kirillo-Belozerskii Monastery. A branch of the museum is also located on the site of the former Ferapontov Monastery in the village of Ferapontovo, Kirillov Raion.
