Welcome to the Roedde family's home. Gustav and Matilda Roedde settled in Vancouver in 1888. Gustav opened the first bookbinding business in Vancouver and by 1893 was successful enough to afford to build a house in the new West End neighbourhood...more

Beautiful house next to a couple of similar houses amongst the skyscrapers of Vancouver. The rooms are set out as they would have been at the time and there are artefacts, clothes, photographs etc to see. Well worth a visit.

My wife loved this little house and tour. Everything is restored to the time period it was built and the people there are very friendly and provide a great experience. It was a great way to spend 30-45 minutes.

In an unexpected way. The guided tour is interesting as I always had elsewhere when visiting historic houses. Yet this little house itself has an odd smell hard to describe. Smell doesn’t bother me but the energies do. Old houses have souls. This is all...More

This little house museum is a fascinating slice of Vancouver life from the early 1900s. Each room is packed with small artifacts and information in relation to Vancouver's history.

A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours looking at this wonderful house and hearing the history of the Roedde family. Very reasonably priced $5 entrance fee and lovely tour guide Marie-Helene.

As a fan of all things retro/vintage, I was keen to visit this place; admittedly, the fact that we were staying just round the corner was a bonus. It's a fully restored 19th C. house, with lots of artefacts, photos and mementos dating to the...More

What a nice way to learn the history of the area by having a guide give us the background of the people that resided in the area in the early 20th century.

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
