Visit Vancouver: Burnaby Village Museum

Since we had nothing on our itinerary for our time in Vancouver, my husband suggested we go to Burnaby Village Museum.

After catching the SkyTrain and Bus to get there, we saw a very, very long line of people at the entrance.  It turns out that most of them were waiting in line to purchase carousel tickets (there is no charge to enter the museum).

Because we were visiting during Spring Break, the museum was offering an Adventure Guide for $6, which consisted of a fun booklet for the kids to complete as they visited various areas around the museum, a ride on the carousel, and a chance to earn cool prizes, so we decided to purchase one for each of the kids.

The Burnaby Village Museum is home to historic buildings and homes from the 1920s. Visitors can go to the theater to watch a silent black and white movie, visit a bakery or barber shop, cash a pretend check at a bank, shop at the general store, and even pick up mail!

It was neat to see the types of furniture, clothing, and other types of products used back then.

Cast members throughout the museum acted as teachers, store clerks, shop owners, and more. The kids had fun interacting with them, especially when it involved tasks (like getting money from the bank and finding the general store to buy something).

There was also a play room on site, as well as an activity room.
At the end of our visit, all of the kids went to ride on the carousel.
It was a fun and educational morning at the Burnaby Village Museum!
