It feels like the family is still living there and is a MUST SEE if you're in the area,You need at least one hour (or more) to really appreciate... More

One of my favourite stops in St Andrews. This lovely little museum provides a glimpse into the lives of Henry and Sarah Ross, an American couple who made St Andrews their home. Their story is one of love for each other and generosity towards friends and their community. They amassed quite a collection of art, furniture and carpets, and then... More

She was very pleasant and answered our questions with extensive knowledge. We were then allowed to take a self-guided tour of the home... More

This beautiful historic house is a block away from the Sheriff Andrews house museum. The house is furnished by everything that the owners accumulated over the years from their travels around the world. The young lady that gave us a tour through the house was very knowledgeable about the Ross family etc. The furnishings are beautiful. Definitely a must see... More

I'm so glad a rainy day in St. Andrews drove us indoors to this very interesting museum. The museum is very nice, but even nicer are the Rosses who made such a lovely gift of their art, furniture and money to the people of New Brunswick. My wife and I were given a very informative introduction upon entering the museum... More

This is a lovely house which gives insight into the owners, and how very generous they were. They led interesting lives, and pertinent facts and pictures regarding their experiences are laid out in a clear, meaningful way. The lady who gave the orientation was passionate and presented the background in a way that endeared us to the Ross family. Well... More

This was one of the most interesting homes that I've had the privilege of touring. The family history is quite unique as is the love story of the last family owning the property. If you love to walk back into time, this is a place to take a stroll.
