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. Purchase your Adventure Pack along with another attraction and save!

Every day is a good day for ice cream at the ice cream parlour! #burnabyvillagemuseum #Repost @foodkrawler ・・・ @burnabyvillage: Old School #IceCreamParlor are the cutest! We got the #Mango and #OrangeCreamsicle #IceCream~Nice way to cool off while exploring #BurnabyVillageMuseum.
Burnaby Village Museum Indigenous Educator Meagan Innes (Squamish) has been generously sharing her time with us harvesting a deer hide at the Learning House on select weekdays. Visitors can learn by watching her work, and may even get a chance to try it out themselves. Meagan says doing this work helps her feel connected to this site as her ancestors would have been doing this same work in this very place. Because of the nature of the program and the deer hide harvesting process, there isn't a set schedule for this work, but we will try to post when Meagan is next on-site. --- #burnabyvillagemuseum #burnabyvillage #indigenouseducation

#Repost @mayorofburnaby ・・・ Thank you to Hon. George Chow, Minister of State for Trade, for visiting the @BurnabyVillage Museum today to see the Across the Pacific exhibition. It was great to share all of the wonderful work that has been done to showcase the history and legacy of Chinese-Canadian migration in #Burnaby.
