Burnaby Village Museum and Carousel ​
Where History Comes to Life


Step back in time and take a stroll down the streets of our 1920s community. Costumed townsfolk welcome visitors and give demonstrations in the homes, businesses and shops. Learn about Chinese Canadian history at the Across the Pacific exhibit, Market Garden and Herbalist medicine shop. Explore Indigenous ways of knowing and learning with our Indigenous educators at the Learning House. Wander through the gardens, take a ride on the vintage 1912 C.W. Parker carousel and treat yourself at the Ice Cream Parlour.

Free admission. Carousel rides are $2.65 each.

Enhance your experience by purchasing an Adventure Guide. Adventurers will experience some of the daily routines and tasks of the 1920s as well as hands-on activities, crafts and puzzles. Plus enjoy a carousel ride! Available for purchase at the gates for $6 each.
