Burnaby Village Museum and Carousel ​
Where History Comes to Life

Stroll down the streets of our 1920s village exploring heritage and replica buildings.  Period costumed townsfolk welcome visitors and give demonstrations in the homes, businesses and shops. 

Popular stops include a chat with the blacksmith, a demonstration in the print shop, a wander through the garden at the farmhouse and a visit with the clerk at the General Store.  Be sure to take in the elegance of the Interurban #1223.

An exciting must for every visitor is a whirl on the historic 1912 CW Parker Carousel. Rides are accompanied by music from a Wurlitzer Band Organ.

Amenities include picnic tables, a gift shop, and an ice-cream parlour which offers a menu for light meals and snacks.
