The Dionne Quints Museum is closed, so cannot be visited. Unfortunately North Bay City Council has decided to have the museum moved from the city, ignoring an important aspect of our heritage and ignoring the wishes of the two remaining Dionne quintuplets to have their birth home remain in North Bay. The province of Ontario made a lot of money... More

The house is nice to see if you keep in mind that they raised so many kids in there. Was interesting to see once but wouldn't go back a second time.

The original home of the Dionne Quintuplets has been made into a museum with all the original artifacts, furniture and pictures preserved. There has been much discussion about moving this museum out of North Bay but it is an important part of our heritage so should definitely be left in North Bay so visitors will be made aware of this...

Too bad the city of North Bay is selling it because they can't afford it as the city spent over $16 million of the tax payers money on the gardens and going to spend over 7 million of tax payers money to run water to the mayors property

We visited this museum because I have always wanted to. It is a nice story, very Canadian and worth celebrating. However the kids were bored silly after ten minutes... Not the museums fault at all... Just reality of the task of keeping young people entertained nowadays. Good for the older generation as they can appreciate the story to a greater... More

Wow." That was the word used by Quints home advocate Jeff Fournier Monday afternoon to describe what he was thinking after reading a City of North Bay report on the future of the Dionne Quints Museum. "It's ludicrous what they're suggesting. North Bay had opportunities to get funding for the home. All they did was look for ways to divest... More

This venue is permanently closed. Sadly I doubt it will be opening anywhere else. I would like to see somewhere in the review area a place that suits a permanently closed check box.

While in North Bay we visited the museum. Very informative and brought back what happen in the older days. The interpreter was well informed and the artifacts well preserved

We stopped to look at this building, by the main highway on our way home from visiting North Bay. The building was closed but it is an interesting log home from the outside. I am not sure of what the full story of the building is supposed to tell of the Dionne Quints.

When a dear friend came to visit I took her to the Dionne museum. Her mother is related to the Dionne family and was excited to visit. I was not expecting to enjoy it but I did. Quite a lot. Unfortunately, I wanted to take my sister last week and learned the museum is closed. We were both disappointed. Worse,... More
