Winnipeg has a number of these Victorian houses, and some are worth the effort to visit. This is rather a good one, and although the displays are a touch pedestrian and without any special artifacts, it is well presented and interesting. It is also well located for visitors, and accessible on foot from most parts of the centre of the... More

We recently went on a 3 generation family visit to the museum for theVictorian Children's Christmas stories. The professional story teller held everyone's attention with her excellent telling of the Night Before Christmas and the Cricket on the Hearth. Her ability to engage the children and bring humour into the Victorian Parlour was delightful. From ages 78-10 we had a... More

took our family through the museum, highly recommend the audio tour! Well kept and very interesting to see the victorian period of furniture etc. the gift shop was also a pleasant surprise, and there was also a travelling exhibition of wedding dresses from the manitoba costume museum. Very well done!

Great experience. $5 worth the 45minute tour. Lots to learn but the location (house) is amazing! Most of the antiques are ordinal from the late 1800s! Surprise, good experience worth a look

One of the absolute best restored old houses in the 'Peg. You can just imagine yourself in it back in the day. A great visit at Christmas as well.

Dalnavert House on its own is an amazing attraction, but do it at night in the witching hours as a ghost tour and you just created the start of a great story! This house has so much history, detail and spirits?!!
