Very interesting and evocative visit to this historic inn. The painted room is well worth a visit and a chat with the guide. Loved the aim of revealing the history and tenants of the house.

A great little Museum that shows the various building techniques by the first Europeans and going forward. They have glass exhibits on the floor so you can see the foundations. The tour guides were excellent and there was a lot of literature available as well.

You might be here for a while. The continuously looping film on the second floor will hold your attention for ~15 mins, The cleverly portrayed 'ghosts', in the basement could keep you mesmerized for another 45 minutes and reading the interpretive materials around the house...More

We found this museum just wandering around Annapolis Royal. It was fascinating to walk around the building which shows how buildings were constructed in the 18th century. The tour guide and docents were very knowledgeable and helpful. The admission is free that you can make...More

This place has had many incarnations and one of the fascinating parts of the exhibitions was listening to the ghosts who had lived there.

Especially lovely if you are a builder since they have exposed the original building through glass floors and wall. Downstairs you can listen to the interesting history. The museum is free.

You really have to visit this very historical building and see the presentation about the wall paintings. It was brilliant and FREE although they do ask for a donation which is only fair.

I expected this to be the usual old house with old furnishings, but instead it was a very interesting lesson on building practices from the past. Looking "thru" the floor to see the old beams was very cool. There is no charge, but donations are...More

The construction history of the house is interesting. Because it is in a conserved state, much of the bones of the place are visible from the foundations to the ceiling. There is an explanation of the tools used in the construction industry of the time....More
