So many Christmas activities in the Lower Mainland are priced beyond the budget of many families...but the Christmas light display at Burnaby Village is delightful and free of charge. Visiting the Village at Christmas is one of our family traditions and never disappoints.

Kids always enjoy the Burnaby Village Museum. We went for the Halloween display, but it is not worth the adminssion. The christmas one is way more enjoyable and interesting.

A good way to experience early local history. When the place is decorated and lit up for the Christmas holidays, it looks quite nice.

Thoroughly enjoyed taking my son to Burnaby Village. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The buildings & exhibits are beautifully maintained. The carousel is over 100 years old and just lovely. Highly recommended experience.
