  • 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. ;)
  • 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.
  • Excellent display of period furniture and decor of Regina's political elite in the early 1900s. The surrounding grounds are splendid.
  • Wonderful! We had the Victorian tea, and it's definitely something to make a habit of doing. The volunteers were awesome, the tea was delicious and the finger sandwiches were delightful.
  • It's a beautiful space with lots of opportunities for pictures. Even has a museum of sorts.

Where to stay in Regina

For convenience, there's no better area to stay than the downtown, between the central station and Wascana Lake. If proximity to the station is important to you, stay north at one of the chain hotels along Saskatchewan Drive. If you'd rather be surrounded by greenery, look south to the more low-key accommodations along College Avenue, which backs onto the large park bordering the lake. Victoria Avenue offers a good selection of hotels in the center, as well as a large cluster of inns and motels as you head east toward the city limits.
