“I was in awe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

After receiving an outstanding tour of the museum from one of the Chamber tour guides, I was completely in awe of the quaint farm house that once housed the quintuplets and their family. There is so much history in that small farm house and it is so well preserved.

I hung on to every word the guide said as the story and artefacts are fascinating. I actually didn't want to leave as I wanted to learn more about the farmhouse and the family history.

Thank you for making it a highlight of my business trip. If I am ever in the area again, I will make sure that I re visit the farm house to learn even more interesting facts.

“Great ltiile attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Considering the age of this home, it is quit interesting to see how much has been preserved from such a long time ago. Nice articles to look at. Not a very long tour so don't plan hours into your trip but well worth it. A piece of history.

“Fascinating History well presented”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Historically interesting from a bygone era. The path up to the original house has a plaque placed by Dionne sisters when they visited as adults, which causes one to pause and think. It is quite moving and tastefully done. The memorabilia in the main building, the friendliness and courtesy of the staff, and the old movie made for a delightful experience. There is a fee if you wish to take the original house tour. The rest is free. Nice picnic tables with shade.

“You know you are over 50 if you know about the Quints!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

It is so great to be able to visit the actual log farmhouse where the world's first surviving quintuplets were born. THEY put North Bay on the map! One just can not imagine the rugged conditions in which Mrs Dionne gave birth! All is there to see, and it is well worth while to stop at this museum right on the trans-Canada highway.
