Take A Trip Back In Time And Discover The Treasures Of Government House.
Restored to the period of Lieutenant Governor Amédée Forget (1898-1910), Government House museum gives you a glimpse of life at Government House at the turn of the 20th century.
Take a First-person Interpretive guided tour (daily, every hour on the hour) and go back in time to the early 1900s. See what a day was like when cellphones and computers didn't exist and what modern convenience were available at the time (how about bathing in a copper tub with running water or talking on the telephone)! Find out why there is a rocking horse in the library and why sales people didn't sit for any length of time on the chairs that were set out for them.
The interpretive panels located throughout the museum offer fascinating facts about each of the 14 rooms. You can also access more information as you tour using our QR codes, located on various panels in the museum.
