If you like a good story and incredible workmanship you need to see this place. The tour is well worth the price of admission.

We love to tour historic houses and this was no exception. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, making the sad tale of the first owners come alive. The period furnishings and family pictures add to the experience.

The staff at the museum were extremely friendly and personable. The innformation provided during the tour was enlightening and many good stories of the history of the home and the families that lived there. Definately worth taking the time to visit.

I adored this tour! The home was beautiful, the tour guides very knowledgeable and friendly, and the period pieces to complete the house was fantastic!

if you're interested in how the rich lived in Victorian times then this will turn your crank. A restored building with a story, and worth the 15-minute walk from the centre. Two floors showcased with period furniture, pictures, porcelain, dining room, bedrooms, servant areas...Just turn up and join a short guided tour. Note: some guides seem better informed than others.... More

Historic Home well refurbished and furnished. The tour was very informative. We took advantage of a rainy day to visit when we could not do outdoor activities that day, Also worth the visit on a nice day, if you have a little spare time.

Nestled in just beside Victoria Park is Beaconsfield Mansion. We decided to pop in on a whim. This beautifull Victorian Manor is a fine exemple of the houses of the wealthy in the history of Charlottetown. The tour is interresting and very reasonnably priced. We highly recommend stopping in!

Home of the PEI Historical Society for many years -- a house furnished as it was when it was home to a rich family in the 19th Century. Authentic and gives a real flavour of the era. Hours restricted, but well worth a visit.

Short, inexpensive and interesting guided tour giving a glimpse of historic Charlottetown through the families that once lived in the house.
