Great interpretive museum showcasing Burnaby's history. Excellent detail, and the highlight is the restored vintage carousel. The museum is free, and even on a Sunday in August did not feel crowded.

If you want to have a good and fun couple of hours with your family, this is definitely a place to visit. Their Halloween decor is great and so is the Christmas one. We spent a few Canada Day there and it was great.

Always a fun experience. It's a bonus that it is free (carousel does have a charge). It's great to see how things used to be in our community.

The Carousel is a must to ride. You get to ride your favorite horse and they sure go fast for being over one hundred years old. The 1925 military band organ sounds like the band is right there. The eco sculptures of the carousel horse...More
