A trip back in time to the old days. This is a fun place to visit in summer as well as around Christmas when they showcase old fashioned Christmas decorations. Little kids get a kick out of the old school room, too.

Great place to visit for those people who love to look into the past. The Village is well designed and kept. There is also an old merry-go-round that was saved by the citizens of Burnaby. It can be ridden by young and old. The Village is located in a large park with a theatre, an art gallery and exceptional surroundings... More

I've visited this place repeatedly during the years I lived in Burnaby. Visiting the lit-up Christmas village and going to the carousel was a neat tradition at Christmas time. I also took the 1-day introduction to blacksmithing course. It's taught right in the blacksmith's shop in the village and it was incredibly fun. I highly recommend it.

If you have not been to Burnaby Village Museum, you are in for a treat. It is located very close to Deer Lake Park, Burnaby City Hall and is a short bus ride away from Metrotown (where you can catch a bus). If you're here in the summer, you can spend all day here and go from display to display,... More
