Overview

Where History Comes to Life - Stroll down the streets of our 1920s community. Period costumed townsfolk welcome visitors and give demonstrations in the homes, businesses and shops. Visitors can feel the heat of the fire as the blacksmith works at the forge, hear the rhythm of the platen press at the Burnaby Post, smell freshly ground coffee in the General Store, be a 1920s student in a one-room schoolhouse, watch the tinsmith cut, crimp & curl flat sheets of tin into useful household items. Everyone is welcome to take a ride on the 1912 CW Parker Carousel, explore the restored 1912 Interurban Tram, and enjoy a treat in the Ice Cream Parlour. The Village is open seasonally (Spring Break in March, Summer Season- early May to Labour Day, and Heritage Christmas-late November to early January) and year-round for pre-booked groups and programs.

We go once a year to the burnaby village museum. It is fun to explore and they often have special events. The carousel is fun and the only thing with a fee. There is also icecream available in the diner.

Be certain to take a ride on the restored 1912 Merry-Go-Round (carousel). A stroll down the 1920's village is also fun, entertaining and educational. There are folks decked out in period clothing as well. This attraction is closed on Mondays.

Thanks for the review! It's true we are closed most Mondays during the summer - statutory holidays are the exception (Victoria Day, BC Day, & Labour Day).
