“closed”
Reviewed October 25, 2011

We were there to late in the season to go inside, but made a point of walking by regardless as we had seen two Emily Carr exhibits. It is lived in during the closed season, but you can peek into the yard and it is well maintained.

“Begin here for Emily Carr”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

The time we spent in Emily Carr's childhood home was very special. We watched the video that described her early years as well as the years she travelled out of the country and in northern British Columbia. I highly recommend Emily Carr's house as a starting point in understanding this exceptional artist.

“quaint old Victorian timber house”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

well curated home of Emily Carr when shen she was a child. Curator lives upstairs so we could only see downstairs rooms. Complimentary video to watch in one room and also free coffee or tea in the lovely back lobby near the garden. Nice to see rooms as they may have looked all those decades ago. A fascinating life and a look into old Victoria life.
She was an amazing writer,painter and potter, now loved across Canada.

“A must see”
Reviewed August 27, 2011

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.
