Did you know that only 40 per cent of the collection at Burnaby Village Museum is on display on any given day?

The Burnaby Village Museum collection consists of objects and textual records spanning countless themes of our region's cultural history. The mandate of the collection is to represent the historical and cultural history of Burnaby.

While 40 per cent of the collection is exhibited throughout the 10-acre village site, much of the collection is housed in storage for research and conservation purposes to ensure the legacy of Burnaby’s tangible heritage.

The museum collects objects and records that tell Burnaby's history from time immemorial to present day. For more information please contact Assistant Curator Kate Petrusa at 604-297-4559 or email at
