TRANSPORT YOURSELF TO THE 1920S
Experience Heritage – Stroll down the streets of a 1920s village exploring at your own pace. The village is a combination of heritage and replica buildings on a 10-acre site that represents at typical tram-stop community along the B.C. Electric Railway. Period costumed townsfolk welcome visitors and give demonstrations in the homes, businesses and shops. Popular stops include the blacksmith, the print shop, the garden at the farmhouse and the General Store.
The heritage buildings on site include a school house, country retirement home and garage, tram station, dry goods store, bank, farm house, bachelors’ house and real estate office.
The recently restored Interurban #1223 is truly elegant. This tram is part of the area’s rich public transportation history. It ran on the interurban lines in Burnaby until the mid-fifties. An exciting must for every visitor is a whirl on the historic 1912 CW Parker Carousel. Rides are accompanied by music from a 1925 Wurlitzer band organ.
This year, the Burnaby Village Museum & Carousel celebrates its 40th anniversary. To celebrate, the City of Burnaby invites everyone to enjoy complimentary gate admission for the 2011 season that started in May!!!!
