Buffet & Heritage Christmas at B.V. Museum

Experience the magic of a heritage Christmas at Burnaby Village Museum. Keep your fingers crossed for snow!


We will meet at the entrance at 5:55pm and walk over to the restaurant for dinner at 6:00pm. It's worth leaving work early if you have to so we can eat a meal and still have time to explore the village before it closes at 8pm.


Dinner will be a fully vegan buffet consisting of a Mediterranean Chick Pea Stew with couscous and salad, followed by fruit for dessert. Price is $21.35 per person, including tax and tip-no additional charge for entrance.


Following that, we will tour the village. Village closes at 9pm, which will give us time to tour.


If you have never been to Burnaby Village Museum, it is like a magical step back in time, with staff dressed in period clothes welcoming you in to authentic homes and businesses, restored to represent the 1920s.

You can watch the black smith making tools. You can watch a black and white silent movie with Charlie Chaplin at the movie theatre. Maybe you'd like to go to the store, the bank, the church or just meander into people's homes. You can even have a ride on the authentic restored carousel.  Whatever we do, it will be all that more magical because it's a rare evening opening, with Christmas decorations true to the period.


Come have some fun with us on this rare meetup event.

    For those who had never been to Heritage Village before, what did you think of the Museum, apart from the dinner? My kids and I love it, and go regularly.

    we were squeezed a little, food was OK, without a Christmas spirit, without creativity, not a huge effort, but just OK. Something was missing this time, let me guess ........... , I tried to have a good time, I think, I had, but always:"it could be better"
