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

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

I visited here with my 3 and 5 year old. They enjoyed trying to find Jocko the monkey who has a new hiding place each month (they receive tattoos for finding its location). The house is a wonderful example of how the well to do lived in the beginning of the 1900s. The new museum addition is a first class... More
