I'm so glad a rainy day in St. Andrews drove us indoors to this very interesting museum. The museum is very nice, but even nicer are the Rosses who made such a lovely gift of their art, furniture and money to the people of New Brunswick. My wife and I were given a very informative introduction upon entering the museum... More

This is a lovely house which gives insight into the owners, and how very generous they were. They led interesting lives, and pertinent facts and pictures regarding their experiences are laid out in a clear, meaningful way. The lady who gave the orientation was passionate and presented the background in a way that endeared us to the Ross family. Well... More

This was one of the most interesting homes that I've had the privilege of touring. The family history is quite unique as is the love story of the last family owning the property. If you love to walk back into time, this is a place to take a stroll.

This is a completely charming place. The town of St. Andrews has had many benefactors in its history and Henry and Juliette Ross were two of the most generous. I find their lifetime collection of art, furniture and rugs fascinating and would love to read more of their writings. It takes less than an hour to tour the museum but... More

The story behind this museum is worth the visit. It is free admission, self-guided tour. Each room has explanatory notes that greatly assist. This is an exceptional museum in that the contents were livable but form a cohesive whole. The Rosses did so much for St Andrew's

We were lucky to be there the weekend that they were having their annual gathering and picnic. Locals had set up booths to offer snacks and drinks. The house was open and we got a thorough understanding of the original owners connection and contributions to Canada's development.

Beautiful preserved historic home in the period of this family family residing in St. Andrews. A short walk up King Street from the Town Square & main Wharf.

Our docent was fabulous, and by the time we left the house, we felt we knew Sarah and Henry Ross. The house is beautiful, but the placards, posters, labels, etc., beautifully present pertinent and meaningful information.

This beautiful home is filled with gorgeous antiques, worth the free visit just for that. It also gives you a glimpse at life in St. Andrews in it's heyday.
