We’ve created a 1920s Village for you to explore. Costumed townsfolk welcome visitors and give demonstrations in the homes, shops and businesses. Highlights include:
chatting with the teacher in the School house
listening to the rhythm of the platen press at the Print Shop
watching the blacksmith working at the Forge
wandering through the gardens at the Love Farmhouse
taking a spin on our 1912 vintage carousel
enjoying the elegance of the restored Interuban 1223
Buses #144, 123 or 129 bring you right by.
on-line map searches using our address will take you to the carousel entrance. Search “Burnaby Village Museum” instead.
