Beautiful building

Have not been to the Government House in 42 years at least. Attended the Volunteer of Saskatchewan medal presentations. The place is beautiful. A must see when in Regina.

If you like visiting fancy houses, then this place is for you. But its historical interest is not that worthwhile for being an unmissable attraction.

I love the museum, which brings the turn of the last century to life. There is something there to attract visitors of all ages.

Some cool history there. Nice displays. Pretty courtyard. I would even go see it again. The staff try to make it self-guided but interactive by creating a hunt

Our daughter had received an invitation to the opening of the Legislature which also included the Lieutenant Governor's reception held at Government House. It was an incredible experience for her (and us as her escorts). The museum was interesting and informative. The reception was lovely and an experience of a life time.

Staff in period costume toured the facility with us and were very knowledgable in sharing the history of the house, its former residents.

This review is about the people of Regina. Amazeballs! We were only here because a kid in an old Impala pulled directly in front of our speeding BMW. Amazingly, he was not hurt. We weren't either. Kid's family offered to put us all up. Socialized insurance paid for every thing plus. Insurance agent threw us a pool party. Any wonder... More

A piece of history with period furniture (not original) in the display rooms and history written up on signs throughout. Meeting rooms, live music, a small coffee snack corner and it makes for a nice visit. Live music many days.
