Pros: A very well-informed and friendly guide gave us a tour of the house. It was very nicely decorated in period style. All questions we had to ask got answered.

Cons: A little hard to find.

Small museum, set up as the house of the original owners, worth a trip if you have a spare hour or so.

Not many people come and visit this place as it is off the beaten path. By donation to enter and you receive and very personal and informative recount of what happened in the Inkster house in the 1800's. Don't miss the July 1st FREE function at this museum. You get more than you bargained for too.

Look for the Green Briar Inn at 1611 Main Street then turn rigth down Rupertland. The museum is 1 1/2 blocks east of Main. Admission is by donation. The flowers gardens are very colourful. We had a guide tour of the house. The guide told many interesing facts. Log building is one of oldest surviving residences in Manitoba . John Inkster's original store and post office are also open for viewing. There were many curiosity things on display - such as in the tools used in the Kitchen. The museum is open from May long weekend through Labour Day Weekend.
