Walk through a 1920’s Canadian town as you learn and observe the traditional trades at Burnaby Village Museum. The buildings of the town are a mix of original constructions and recreations of older buildings made to house artifacts of the early 20th century. Staff members dress in period clothing as they display traditional artisan skills and live as though it were the 1920s. Visitors can wander the town and view the artifacts, which includes a 1920’s carousel that is available to ride. A restaurant in the village provides food options.

  • We use to go to the museum every year with our grand-daugher and her friends, love the people dressed up and the merry-go-round. Great work in keeping everything looking like new. It is always a treat...  read more »
  • If you don't have very high expectations, this place sure deserves a visit. Has some nice stuff and it's located at a very nice site. Free parking! 
  • Went to meet some people for a birthday been there for there christmas lights too was beautiful to see 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Absolutely awesome, great museum with great history, they have a restaurant so you can eat on property in a vintage setting or many areas you can sit & picnic, all sorts of people dressed for the period who give you history lessons on the different buildings & delightful to talk to, they have one of the old carousels that's been restored is indoors so even if the weather isn't so nice you can go for a ride & stay nice & dry...had a wonderful time!
  • Fantastic place to bring friends and family. The museum has a lot to teach about 20th century shops and crafts. It's exceptionally pleasant to go through the scenic route and find interesting places and information. Learning about the old train system was fun and cool! Informative and refreshing, the Burnaby Village Museum gives insight on local history and a good place to tour.
  • We had never been here until we came for the Canada Day celebrations this year, and wow we were impressed. It's an actual replica of a small village complete with shops and houses you can walk into and tour. Highlight was the restored passenger train, just fantastic.
