“Wonderful small museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2011

Everything about this museum is charming and moving, especially if you know anyone who suffers from diabetes. Such a world-famous scientist deserves the detailed care that have gone into this special place, from the flame of hope outside to the gorgeous Miecznekowski sculpture of Banting himself. I particularly enjoyed sitting in the bedroom where he had the famous dream which gave him the idea for insulin. The person guiding us was very knowledgeable and helpful.

“Great stop - inspiring and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2011

Banting House is a great stop for anyone in or passing through London. A truly inspiring place, the new global garden adds another element to the visit. Be sure to take the time to visit Banting House and learn about Sir Fred Banting and how he conceived the idea behind insulin in the upstairs bedroom. When you're upstairs check out the ever-growing collection of Banting's art.
Take time to speak to the museum curator - he will inspire you with his passion and enthusiasm for all things Banting.

“Truely and inspiration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2007

A must see for all Canadians. Sir Frederick was so much more than a doctor. He was a war hero, scientist, nobel lauriet - a great Canadian.
