We initially planned this visit from out of province because our daughter wanted to see the place her favourite band Marianas Trench recorded their video for "Shake Tramp". We were not disappointed!

The carousel was beautiful and the ride lasted much longer than expected! The grounds are beautiful! Of course the highlight (at least for a Marianas Trench fan) was the main street. Every building was extremely interesting and there was so much to see! My favourite was probably the General Store.

A half a day is not enough time to spend if you really want to take everything in. We ran short of time (our fault) and rushed a bit at the end of our tour. I could have stayed much longer!

Highly recommend!

I have been to the Burnaby museum a number of times and each time I see a little more. I have taken and adult with developmental disabilites there, as she is focused on carousells. Staff have always been friendly and respectful to her unique needs. I went more recently with my children for the 12 days of christmas. The grounds were beautiful and we had a fantastic time.

Burnaby Village Museum offers patrons a fun, realistic glimpse into the past. Set up as an actual village, this outdoor museum has plenty to offer, and, with free admission, is an affordable adventure. Be sure to have a reasonably priced ride on the carousel before leaving.

Loved walking this park with a most beautiful display of Christmas lights and celebrations! The carousel is a great treat for the kids too.
