We visited the Ross Memorial Museum as we were leaving St Andrews and were glad we took the time to do so! What a home and what a wonderful story of the owners . The decor is awesome and the stories of how the collections were acquired is very interesting. The cottage craft exhibition on the lower floor was most... More

This house is very historic and a nice experience in St. Andrews. It is just off Water and King Street and the staff at the home are quite friendly and informative. The collected furniture in the home is very interesting. I would recommend this to family and friends. What a beautiful setting and town.

This historic home has beautiful furnishings but what sets it apart is the story of the generous couple who donated the house to the town. Be sure to hear about them and see this summer's excellent temporary exhibit on Mowat.

We stayed two days at St Andrews and really appreciate all attractions specially our visit at the Ross Memorial Museum. Canada has a great history well presented/known by its citizen. Culture is everything. A French guy living in Canada since 4 years.

This museum is a must on your visit. A very interesting story on the couple who lived there. The furnishings are beautiful and story of their lives and travels are worth seeing. They were a very rich couple without any children and traveled all over the world. Curator gave us a history of the couple and then we explored on... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent visit. A lovely home and a very interesting family. A beautiful story about two people who loved each other very much. And they were very generous to the people in their lives and to the town of St. Andrews.

Very interesting. Loved the stories of the family. Our friends from the UK had the complete tour and stories and were really fascinated by the history of the couple that owned the house etc.

Came across this museum while walking around St Andrews. Free entrance, but donations welcome. Beautiful house bought by a couple at the turn of the last century to house all their antiques they had collected on their travels. Beautiful furniture and antiques. Very informative talk given on arrival and spent a couple of hours here.

Like the Sheriff's house down the street, this is a well preserved period family home, but of a higher income bracket, with a collection of travel souvenirs and home movies from a bygone era. The kids were intrigued by the home movies of their travels in Africa, and the (dated) ways in which they viewed and described what they were... More

A lovely restoration in what was a family home. There is not even an entrance fee but the museum relies on donations for its upkeep and it is certainly worth contributing. It's particularly interesting if you also visit the Rossmount Inn to understand how the two places are connected. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. You direct your own tour so... More
