- Amazing for young kids! The old carousel is such a great attraction for young ones.... they will easily ride 3 times without getting bored. Awesome staff there too. Visit during Christmas and New Years for beautiful decorations. You can't beat free! (January, 2020)
- This is a great place to spend time with family, friends or go discover Burnaby as it was long time ago. We like going here on Summer days, to enjoy the details "hidden" inside these heritage buildings, as the natural light is brighter. The great thing about this place is that the entire year, admission was free. Thank you City of Burnaby for opening those gates for everybody.
Great place for school trips, they have entertaining activities for students, to keep them curious and busy. They have great events during winter and we are planning to visit again on Christmas Day (December, 2019)
- This place is awesome, I love history so this I was amazed by this place, lots of things to see, if you really want to read all and go through all the places they have then you will need a while day here, this place is not always open to the public so search for days and times when they are open, you will have a lot of fun and shocked by how BC was like back in the days. So awesome. (December 2019)
- I love this free family-friendly place! It's a museum that is fun and interactive - there are costumed people to help set the mood, a carousel to ride, and a cafe to enjoy and relax in. They have events to celebrate Canada Day and other holidays and to make it a place to come back to visit time and time again. It's set among beautiful trees and makes for a fun stop in conjunction with a stop at Deer Lake Park. (August 2019)
- I've been to many museums in my lifetime, from arts all the way to natural history but this place is a live museum which makes it so very unique.
It is a replica of Burnaby back in the olden days of blacksmiths and listening to music with phonographs. Even a self playing piano that follows the instructions off a sheet of paper, sounding great at that! Within the buildings you may also find a volunteer dressed in era costumes giving you a brief history of the posts they are at, all with very in depth knowledge of the building they are in which is great for people like me who love history, as well as children who might be curious.
Be sure to visit the theatre as well, it plays modern movies but seating on wooden chairs, it really would take someone back in time. (April 2019)
