We went on Canada Day cause they have a concert, along with horses, clowns, and a bouncy castle. They were also giving out free lemonade, water, cookies, suckers and popcorn with $2 hot dogs. It is very busy when events are there, otherwise not so much. The house is very nice and so are the grounds. The green house was... More

We visited here on Canada Day 1st July for the Lt Governor's Garden Party. There were about 4-500 folk there and it was a great day with plenty of entertainment and stalls...including some clowns. It was a hot day so plenty of drinks were needed. The house is a step back in time and well worth the visit...maybe on a... More

We visited the chamber, the library and other parts of the building and we got a very good explanation about its history and how everything works there. The guide, also explained us about important laws and reforms that were created there that impacted whole Canana. The entrance is free.

This is an awesome place to visit when in Regina. You can see how our past premiers lived and entertained. The guides are all very knowledgeable and will give you all the history about each and every room in this historic site. This is a must visit for visitors.

VictorianTea is held on a monthly basis. One of the best is the Christmas Victorian Tea. Take the opportunity to visit the Government House - it is delightful. Well preserved and especially beautiful at Christmas

Been to similar attractions like this before. Was my first time here and it was great. Loved having the guide share details and information about the government house. Also did the scavenger hunt there too for added fun and attended the teat which was lovely. Thanks and great job

The visit provides a glimpse into the life style of erstwhile Lt Governors. Plumbing of late nineteenth century is interesting to see. It is pleasing to se that along with high ranking officials, the Museum pays tributes to servants and cooks as well. A 1959 Invitation to Luncheon in Honour of Her Majesty the Queen is very interesting for it... More

I visited this place in August. I was planning 2-3 hours in this place. However, I was disappointed. We just spent an hour in this place. There were two floors in this building. The first floor displays the dinning room, study, and the second floor displays different kinds of living rooms. In addition, there is an exhibition for Saskatchewan's history... More

We do now thanks to this wonderful and beautiful museum in Regina. It's a wonderful place and the restored home is wonderful. The interpretive center is also very good and the gardens... More
