Eerie Illusions at Burnaby Village Museum | Kids Out and About Vancouver

Eerie Illusions at Burnaby Village Museum

Burnaby Village Museum is transformed into a magical world bathed in breathtaking colour, with talking crows, invisible bands and photo-bombing ghouls as part of Eerie Illusions, a Halloween event unlike anything else in Metro Vancouver. Utilizing state-of-the-art lighting, projections, soundscapes and special effects, Eerie Illusions will amaze and astound visitors of all ages, and showcase Burnaby Village Museum's 10 acre venue as it has never been seen before.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

The fun starts when two eager children discover a book of magical spells, unleashing a torrent of enchantments throughout the Village. As the children work to set things right, the Village is overrun with unruly spirits, chatty crows and portals to different dimensions and times. Visitors will encounter unique displays, activations and surprises as they explore the Village on a quest to return things to normal.

This self-guided family friendly Halloween experience is suitable for all ages. Purchase your tickets in advance.

Take-out food is available for purchase from our on-site café. In addition, there will be food trucks on site selling snacks such as candy apples and popcorn. 

Event runs rain or shine, please dress for the weather as this is an outdoor event.
