The museum spans 10 acres (4 ha) of land. Some of the buildings are original heritage buildings, moved from other locations in the community and restored, but about ten of them are replica buildings, created to house specific displays and artefacts.

Besides the replica church, drugstore, barbershop, general store, garage and blacksmith shop as they could have looked like in the 1920s, there are the following more notable reconstructed houses:
# A reproduction log house. Burnaby’s first settler, William Holmes, built a log cabin in 1860.
# A replica Ofuro (bathhouse), built in 1977 by Frank Kamiya, architect, and Jiro Kamiya, design and construction, donated by the Greater Vancouver Japanese Canadian Citizens' Association to commemorate the arrival in B.C. of the first Japanese immigrant in 1877. The Ofuro reopened in 2015.
# A reconstructed Chinese herbalist’s shop (Way Sang Yuen Wat Kee), the contents if which came from a store which operated in Victoria from about 1900 to 1971.
