We attended the Government House Historical Society Antique Auction this past weekend. I was able to also enjoy the historic building and contents and appreciate the well-manicured grounds. For visitors to Regina, the capital of the province, it is worth noting that this was the historic home of the Lt. Governor in charge of the entire Northwest Territories which, in... More

This building first served as the Lt governor residence and is decorated as it would have been then. It's a great place to experience and learn some Saskatchewan history. If you have more than 1 family, call ahead and book a tour guide for your group. I felt our kids got more out of the visit with the knowledgeable guide... More

A great display of how the wealthy lived in the 1800's including the house itself, the furnishings, the clothing and housewares.

Tucked away in a residential neighborhood is Government House home of the Lieutenant Governor, a well maintained and beautifully decorated property with all the trappings of the representative of the Queen. No crowds, so had plenty of time to go around to all the different rooms and get a good look. A great place to visit if you want to... More

Took the tour here with family and really enjoyed it. The living quarters were well restored and documented. The supplemental information and effects were well done and interesting. The grounds were pretty and well maintained. We were there on a Friday in June and it was not in the least crowded. The staff was all knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend... More

This museum tells the story of the province of Saskatchewan. There are many guides, dressed in period costume, who are willing to guide you along and teach you several things about the prominent people within SK's history. The ballroom and the piano were the highlights of my trup there. It's a free event that is family-friendly.

This beautiful house and gardens are home to the current Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan. The left wing of the house has been converted into a museum. There is no admission charge but the suggested donation is $6. Upon arrival, a friendly security guard will point you in the right direction and will give you a brochure. You will need the... More
