  • Thoroughly enjoyed this well maintained museum/park. Very historic, and interesting!
  • Sorry did not intend to leave a bad review. The Park House is definitely a must see for anyone wanting to learn about the history of Amherstburg and Essex County during their visit.
  • My wife and I did the ghost tour. It was a fun experience as they shared some history about the house and some of their personal experiences in the house.
  • An excellently presented view of past events regarding many subjects through the ever changing exhibits. The staff are friendly and generally quite knowledgeable about the building, its history, and the town of Amherstburg. I would make sure to look into what events they are having if you stop by because they have a wide variety! Also, their tinware is better made than anywhere else I've seen and also much more affordable than other places.
  • Attended the ghost tour, the staff has some great stories.
