“Learn a little more about Canada”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Haven't been in school for many years and had forgotten some Canadian history. The video and Staff helped jog the memory. Loved that the building had been restored.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

The guide was very friendly and enthusiastic. The tour was interesting and the building is in excellent condition. Wonderful to see some of the original furnishings and pictures. Stepped back in time and yet heard about the Queen and Prince William and Kate's visits.
Not obvious that it's open. Check the info inside the gate by the gatehouse.
