We did not plan originally to visit, but when we saw it near Victoria Park we decided to stop and take the tour. The docent was knowledgeable about the history and the interesting story behind the house. Pleasant grounds and wonderful view of the bay.

We recently toured this lovely historic house and property overlooking Charlottetown Harbour. Very reasonable entrance fee of $10.00 for two seniors and the tour runs approximately 45 minutes. There is some stair climbing. The history of the house is interesting as are the architecture and decor. Worth a visit on a rainy day.

Love visiting this home of the local ship builder. The docent was well informed about the home, the owners, the furnishings and the way of life lived in this home. Enjoyed this little piece of PEI history.

If you like Victorian era homes and historical architecture, then this is the house for you! If you don't like these things, then you won't like the museum. Lots of history and knowledgeable tour guide. Tour is mandatory, but pricing is reasonable. Tours run on an on demand basis and last about 45 min. The house is rather small, so... More

We walked the heritage trail around Charlottetown ~5k. Got map at Info center. House was not open when we got there. This sight is on waterfront adjacent to Victoria Park which looks like a lovely waterfront park
