Since we were staying at the Rossmount Inn, we thought it would be nice to visit the Museum to learn the history of the original owners of the Inn, the Ross Family. There is no admission fee to the museum, only a donation if you wish, which makes it affordable for everyone. It was a very interesting part of St.... More

I went twice to this museum. Very interesting part of NB history, antique furniture, photos, carpets and other collectibles from the Ross family. The guide was resourceful and knowledgeable. I enjoyed talking to her and she stayed past the closing time just for me. The entrance is by donation. I learned a lot there!

It was a nice visit thats for sure. The woman that greeted us was super nice and welcoming. She gave a small informative introduction. It is definitely a nice activity to go by. The rooms are all kept in its way they were. It‘s crazy how the styles have changed over the past few centuries. It is a piece of... More

Nice home where the guide gives you such personal attention. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. This is an old large home w/interesting history and is kept in a way that you feel like you are visiting someone's home.

This was an unexpected addition to our day in St Andrews. A friend (a Ross!) recommended that we pop into the museum while we were in St Andrews. We did and were pleasantly surprised. There is no admission fee, but donations are welcome. The kids were impressed with the displays and interested in hearing about the history of the Rosses.... More

This museum is about the Ross family. They travelled the world and brought back many gifts, especial from Asia. Recommend you do the Christmas open house in late November, early December. The community decorates the rooms. It is a highlight of the town

Don't miss a trip to the Ross Memorial Museum in St. Andrews. Margot Sackett is an absolutely wonderful hostess; she opened our eyes to the beauty and adventurous lives of Henry and Sara Ross. The artwork and furnishings are ample reason to visit, but the back-story of the Rosses and their world travels is just not to be missed. Definitely... More

Great house to explore. The owner traveled to the Caucasus and collected some really nice carpets. Clocks were cool too.
