Owner description: House belonging to famous Canadian painter Emily Carr.

It is a modest self-tour through the first floor of the childhood home of artist Emily Carr. There are descriptive quotes from Emily throughout the rooms and gardens providing her insight and memories.In one room a video biography is available so you can sit and learn about her life. The custodian on sight is very knowledgeable and happy to answer all questions and provides tea and cookies as well. Very charming.

The admission was inexpensive and you do not need very long here. It is interesting to watch the video about Emily Carr and see the period as it was back when she was a little girl and into womanhood. This attraction is worth the visit and also the walk from downtown is very inviting if you stop to look at all the old houses that are in the area to give you a sense of what you are about to see at the Carr house. Its just a short stop on your way through James Bay. Books and memorabilia are available in the small gift shop. Cookies and coffee or tea are also included, which was a nice touch. I am now inpsired to read Emily's many books as she has certain flair for writing about what she sees and feels and makes you feel and see it too.
