  • A well kept, nicely exhibited village Museum reminding us of old time. They have plenty of history displayed there. A must visit if you are in Metro Vancouver. It has almost every aspect of old time. There is a nice restaurant, coffee shop and gift shop, you can bring your children they might love this place. Parking and admission is free. Its a little town of its own kind surrounded by lot of greenary.
  • Heritage Christmas is a festive and a must do for families during the holidays. Turn of the century village with period buildings is now decorated for Christmas. It's a great place to go with your loved ones for the holidays. Gate admission is free and lots of free parking. Vintage carousel is under $3/ride. There's a restaurant with hot drinks and light snack to warm you up from the cold and lots of small shops and buildings to explore. Lots of fun and full of history.
  • Such a great place to go! Was a family tradition growing up to come here every Christmas and now I take my husband. I love the live carolers and the costumed actors. They really set the mood. The little cafe is also a great place to stop for a hot drink if you come in the winter time. Make sure to get a ticket for the 100+year old carousel too!
  • Great little gem in the heart of the city! Love coming here with the family during special holidays like Canada Day, Christmas Lights Festival and Halloween Haunted Village. The kids get to learn a little bit about the past and understand how things were very different 40-90 years ago from what it is now each time we go.
  • An amazing place for the young and old. A must do for the families at Christmas time and even Halloween. The staff are always super helpful and you will learn a lot about history. My wife signed me up for beginner's blacksmithing at the forge here, and it was an unforgettable educational experience. I have a healthy respect for that particular trade, especially the labor involved in making simple things like nails, and hooks.
