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.

NEW  The Village Adventure Pack - To fully experience the Village, try our NEW Adventure Pack! The Adventure Guide leads you through hands on creative activities and exploration adventures at 6 locations.  Two rides on our marvelous 1912 CW Parker Wurlitzer Carousel (because one is never enough) are included, as well a large ice cream cone from our authentic Ice Cream Parlour, plenty of flavors to choose from!  At the end of the day, a canvas adventure bag, carousel magnet, Burnaby Village Museum reusable water bottle and, of course your completed Adventure Guide will make wonderful mementos.
