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

Lovely old building and a great way to learn about the history of the city and province. Going to tea is a nice event.

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.

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.
