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.

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
