Burnaby Village Museum partners with academic researchers and students to explore and expand on our region's rich history.
Since 2018, students at UBC's Asian Canadian & Asian Migration Studies program have participated in a research partnership with Burnaby Village Museum, which focuses on learning more about the stories of Asian Canadians who have lived in Burnaby.
This partnership also contributed to the creation of the Across the Pacific exhibit, exploring the impact of Chinese Canadians in Burnaby since the late 1800s.
Burnaby Village Museum is an important resource within B.C.'s public museum community. Our staff regularly work with cultural and historical groups, indigenous communities, colleges and universities, other museums and archives.
The museum also maintains an important affiliation with Friends of the Carousel, the community group which originally purchased the 1912 CW Parker Carousel in 1987, and sold it to the City of Burnaby for $1.
The Friends continue to provide funding for the carousel's maintenance, and its members have been active in promoting its history during museum events.
