We only had one day to visit Regina, and not being a Canadian, I had skipped over this attraction. But our campground host recommended that we visit because it was the Lieutenant Governor's home, built shortly after Saskatchewan became a province in 1905. It was good advice! We got a great tour from one of the docents, who took us... More

Family stopped here for an hour or so since we heard they were doing a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Flag. When we walked into the place, we were one of only a few people touring (it was later in the day). A guide gave us a short private tour then allowed us to walk thru all... More

If you like old houses, and learning how the privileged lived, this is an interesting place to see. The grounds are also beautiful. Canada Day celebrations here are entertaining.

Historical, beautiful architecture, very well done, cool stories and excellent guides. If you only have time to see one thing come here. The gardens are not that special. I'd skip them if the weather was bad. Free and air conditioned!

As a parent chaperone for my son's end of the school year class trip, this historical building was rich with wonder & amazement! We learnt so much from the well spoken guides & appreciated being in such a Royal place!!

As an American, I was more than a little confused about the relationship Canada has to England, but this answered some of my questions, as well as giving me much more background on the fur trade era and its immediate effects. The guide was quite knowledgeable, the museum is well curated, and very informative.
