This place is a must to see when visiting Regina. In winter the place is warm and inviting. during the holiday season it is beautifully decorated. If you are here on Jan.1 you will not want to miss the open house levee. You will be treated to a tour of this stately building.

The history of the Queens ambassadors(Lt Governors) throughout the years and the history of the building itself. Fun staff, self guided tour and free !! Probably not much fun for younger kids but good for everyone else.

If you love history and old historic buildings, this is a great tourist site. The building has been restored to the early 1900's and the gardens are perfect for a stroll any time of year. A free attraction that is well worth the trip

Nestled in Regina, west of Lewvan Dr., just left off Dewdney Ave. lies a hidden nugget. An adventure, well worth taking. Built in 1891, then later restored, Govt. Hse. gives you a glimpse of life at the turn of the 20th Century. Offering guided tours by volunteers in period costumes; monthly Victorian Teas, Herbal Garden on grounds in Summer and... More

Large 1800s decor and furniture, many artifacts formerly owned by the first Governor General of the province. A must see if you are travelling through Regina. Also good for groups.
