Roedde House Museum, Vancouver

(4.3/5 based on 40 reviews on the web)
Roedde House Museum, in Vancouver's West End, is a uniquely restored late-Victorian home in the Queen Anne revival style. Built in 1893 for the family of Gustav Roedde, the city's first bookbinder, it has been faithfully restored to reflect the day-to-day life of a middle class, immigrant family at the turn of the last century.

Roedde House is owned by the City of Vancouver. Indeed, it was its 1976 designation by the City as a heritage house that was a catalyst for the restoration and development of the entire Barclay Heritage Square. This was a monumental undertaking, involving many dedicated groups and individuals, including the citizens of the residential West End neighbourhood.

The Museum offers a unique experience for visitors: unlike many heritage houses, the rooms are not roped off or behind glass, and some of the artefacts may be handled with care. Each of the eleven rooms has been furnished with artefacts and period items, which were collected over the years, some returned by the Roedde family. Experienced docents will be happy to share their knowledge and stories with you.
