  • We went to the christmas village, it was cool to be able to walk into old buildings instead of just reading about them. The carousel was cool, most of the horses were original, so over 104 years old. ...  more »

  • A fun treat for the whole family! Walk through this re-created village of historic buildings and artifacts with staff in period costumes teaching about the buildings and describing everyday life when Burnaby was in its infancy. Free parking, free admission (other than special events), and cheap rides on the heritage carousel!
  • This is a special place and free to visit. Bring your kids and out of town guests to a well presented historical village. Each building has either self explanatory exhibits or a person dressed in period clothing who tells you about the exhibit. There is a canteen with sandwiches and ice-cream. Make sure you check out the electric Tram and the carousel.
  • Always a fun place to go, especially with children. The carousel is always a favourite and looking round the old stores is interesting. Very well kept, the gardens are lovely.
  • The whole village is one big museum, showing how people used to live in the past. They have real life actors and it's all free! Look up the events on their website before choosing the date to go.
  • My little kid love to go there again and again, specifically the carousel, probably they are still little, the best thing is they are free admission most of the time, they do have lot of event you need to check on the internet. Best place to spend a day with family without hurting the budget.
