Government House Is Closed To The Public

Starting Monday, November 30, 2020 Government House will be closed to the public until further notice. All in-person tours will be cancelled.  However, virtual tours will be available.  This change will help Government House meet the expectations outlined by the province’s Chief Medical Health Officer and help curb the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

You are invited to visit virtually and experience the splendour of the season at Government House from your own home.

Government House will be offering virtual Victorian Christmas Tradition tours through Facebook Live on:

  • Saturday, December 12 at 10:30 am
  • Sunday, December 20 at 1:00 pm and 2:30 pm.

Be on the look out for a pre-recorded Christmas Tour of Government House available on our Facebook page and Youtube Channel (links will be posted on the website) starting December 21st

We will continue to post exhibit information, fun facts, etc. on our Facebook page so make sure to check in during the week.
