  • I loved the Government House Museum after two visits and need to visit a third time to finish the tour. Normally this Museum would only take one visit, but first attempt, I left the Hostel with my South Korean sidekick tour partner whom goes by the alias ........ Hopkins ! .......... a little late. Anyway, after taking us on a one hour added to our trip really long short cut we arrived 20 minutes before closing and so we split up dashing around the house trying to take as many photos as humanly possible within are limited time budget. Day two we arrived an hour and a half before closing and didn't quite wrap up the full house tour. This is a must see Museum for everyone, singles, couples, families and is wheelchair accessible. The security staff and Lovely Hostess are friendly, professional and knowledgeable about the History of Government House and exhibits enhancing the overall experience of this must see Museum for Canadians and tourists alike. The admittance is free plus you take home a 49 colour page Government House booklet absolutely free, but there is a donation box for those whom appreciate Government House enough to offer a little support. ;)
  • Love attending the monthly teas and especially the Christmas tea. Volunteers serve the teas and are very hard working!
  • Super awesome spot! They are working very closely to re obtain original pieces from the home after it was used as a hospital. Pride is taken in everything done here. Even the security guards know enough to give a full tour. Even if you live in regina it's worth checking out.
  • Always have fun here! Tours are great, and if you can go to one of the teas, even better!
  • Amazing tour. Really enjoyed the historical home.
