The house has been carefully reconstructed with lots of quotations from Emily carr's books throughout the gardens. We particularly enjoyed the nfb film

Great tour of the formative years of one of this countrys greatest known artists.
You see what her life was like and how her surroundings shaped her passion.

I'm not much of an art fan, but like to check out the famous people/places when I visit and she's an icon for Victoria. While I don't fancy her art, the gallery itself is nicely displayed. If you bring children have then 'library voices on' as the staff frown fairly heavily at little jovial voices!

The original home where Emily Carr grew up. A charming house and fun to visit after you've read her book about her childhood.

My daughter is very artsy, so this was her pick. We enjoyed reading all of the quotes in the garden outside. Inside the house, there was lots of information as well as a film about her life. There was a very well appointed gift shop as well.
We were disappointed that we could not go upstairs.
