I ♥ Faces – Week 33: Nostalgia (Burnaby Village Museum)



While we were in Vancouver, one of the places that we visited was the Burnaby Village Museum. That, together with Science World, was one of my favorite places to visit with the kids.

As soon as you step onto the grounds, you are transported back to the 1920’s. The people who work there wear period costumes, so you actually feel like you’re in the midst of Little House on the Prairie. Walking around in the schoolhouse, I felt like I would find a desk with the Laura Ingalls’ initials carved on it.

This photo here was taken at the general store. I just love those old tins and old-time candies…

I would've loved that! I may be a bit on the odd side but I really liked watching Little House on the Prairie and have always wanted to live like that for a least a few months. (Of course that would mean no computer or phone...but it would be relaxing!)
