Owner description: Where History Comes to Life - stroll down the streets of our 1920s community. Our village is a combination of heritage and replica buildings on a 10-acre site. Period costumed townsfolk welcome visitors and give demonstrations in the homes, businesses and shops. Two of our large artifacts are now over 100 years old - enjoy a ride on the 1912 CW Parker Carousel and explore the restored 1912 Interurban Tram, part of a transportation system before its time.

I've lived in burnaby all my life and I never been to The Burnaby Village Museum and I'm glad I got to experience it. I went for the Halloween Haunted Village and it was a very fun night, picturesque village and very knowledgeable and friendly staff. We rode the 102 year old wooden carasoul which was pretty amazing.

This is a great place for young and old. It's has two small streets with old buildings and artifacts from days of yore. Take your time to enjoy the activities, see the sights and grab a bite to eat. Folks are dressed in period costumes and many exhibits are working. Don't miss it!

Our children love going to the Burnaby Village Museum. We go at least once a year and always enjoy imagining our family living in that time period. The buildings are beautiful and filled with many interesting displays that always capture our interest. There is a great ice cream parlour and it is a perfect place to visit at the end... More

We took the bus from metro town which was quick and straightford. Arriving well before the doors opened we decided to walk around Deer Lake which was absolutely beautiful. The site is lovely and you truly step back in time. My ten year old thought it was great, not just the buildings but watching the printing press at work and... More

We went as a family during a visit out west visiting family and what a great way to spend the day. It is such a great find and wasn't that expensive at all. My wife spent the time going through the shops and house and comparing stuff to what they have to what her moms have. It really is a... More

Locked in time. Beautiful village setting from over one hundred years ago. Great spot on Canada Day or summer evenings for ice cream floats. Across from Dear lake. Great date or family outing.

This is a charming village set in a park like setting. Well worth the visit. Stroll through the many displays - ride in an antique car. Bring your camera!

Educational and entertaining. Great for the whole family. Every time, we have out of town guests, we try to take them there. The museum allows us to walk through history of early Burnaby living. Lots of staff and volunteers keep this place running wonderfully. Our family have visited many times and still are not tired of doing so. Deer Lake... More
