It was on this day in 1971 that the Burnaby Village Museum (then Heritage Village) was officially opened by Governor General Roland Michener. Aside from seasonal activities, it’s a year-round attraction where you can learn about Burnaby’s history, take a ride on the heritage carousel, and check out the old Interurban.
For the holidays, the Burnaby Village Museum is hosting a Heritage Christmas.
The Village is illuminated this festive season with spectacular displays of lights that are sure to put you and your family into the holiday spirit! Lights in our parking lot are a teaser of what’s to see inside. Delight in the shimmering Winter Wonderland near the Love Farmhouse, an Angel-Crossing at the bridge, a Holiday Lane and be wowed by the gigantic multi-coloured Christmas tree sparkling near the carousel. Eco-sculptures, adorned with shining holiday lights, are out of their winter hibernation and along the edge of the meadow.
Stop by November 24th to December 14th, 2012 daily from 12:00pm to 4:30pm and December 15th, 2012 to January 4th, 2013 between 12:00pm and 9:00pm. The village will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Admission is free and carousel rides are $2.30. Follow the Burnaby Village Museum on Facebook and Twitter for more information.
