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.

The museum has an event at Christmas time. Each room is decorated by certain groups, all with a different theme. It is very interesting to see all the different ideas. They also provide live music, and hot cider and cookies. Delicious! Puts you in the Christmas spirit.....

This is a wonderful opportunity to get a glance at the history of St. Andrews. The home is open during the summer and early fall.

To enter the Ross house, you have to ring the door bell and wait for the employee to welcome you, just as one would when visiting friends. After a short introduction about Henry and Sarah Ross and their lifestyle (it took them 3 months to drive across the US on their honeymoon with their maid and butler!), we were let... More
