My Parents grew up with them. Was interested to see as my Mom says that is not the original house. Its ok But wouldn't put it at my top of the list. The store is more interesting than house.

I really enjoyed the highly informative guided tour of the Dionne Quints childhood home. The fascinating and often tragic lives of the girls was beautifully presented with much references given to items on display. Dresses from special occasions (including the Royal visit of 1939), memorabilia such as dolls, photographs from throughout their lives, all very interesting to see. The tourist... More

This makes for an interesting trip, taking a step back in history and seeing artifacts from the quints' lives and learning about their history.

I loved travelling back in time and visiting the Dionne's home. I didn't like how one sided the tour guides are about the information and how they protect the governments decision to take the Girls away from their family home. It was a mistake, admitted by the officials. It's time to tell the truth and move forward.

Beautiful small museum in the house where the quintuplet Dionne was born. Some artefacts witness of their past are preserved there. The young guide, Christian, knows very well the history and decorates with relevant comments. To visit if you belong to North Bay and that you have one hour to dedicate to it.

We made the 5 hour drive to North Bay so my 80 year old mother could finally visit the museum! The first part of the tour was guided by a very knowledgeable staff member from the Visitors Centre (on the same property) and had some of the Dionne's furniture, along with different outfits and photographs of the quints. In the... More

I visited this museum the first time around 23 years ago. I just returned a couple days ago. I still enjoyed visiting the museum again. I even took my 10 year old daughter with me this last time to visit it. She like looking at the pictures with me and found the five strollers in a row to be very... More

We added the Dionne Quints Museum to our holiday trek through Northern Ontario. The information was good we enjoyed seeing the artifacts of the time era that the quints were born. You should tour through if you are ready for a break from driving & have a bit of time. Such a miracle having 5 babies, it is to bad... More

This is a small attraction that is nonetheless in two buildings. The North Bay tourist office has a room full of Dionne Quintuplets memorabilia. Adjacent to that building is the actual house where the children were born (not its original location). A tour guide accompanies visitors to the house. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the history of the quintuplets.... More

Good local history. If you are a bit or maybe a lot older you will be familiar with the story but interesting for the family. Dan
