This House takes us back to the world 100 years ago.

Charming décor, fascinating stories, authentic artifacts, and even a resident ghost will delight you. The "Once-Upon-A-Time" Room is a place for children to make-believe.

Last winter i went here with my boyfriend, my sister and her boyfriend. We were really interested to know more about this building and just trying to do interesting things in Regina. I feel like we may have looked a little out of place, as we weren't a school field trip or maybe the clientele they are used to seeing... More

A step into Government House in Regina, Saskatchewan is like a step into a past that celebrated warmth, beauty and a touch of whimsey. For the time of the tour, it is easy to imagine oneself the resident of this graceful manor. Transported in time to an era when hospitality equalled the esteem one held of one's guests; when all...

We took our friend that was visiting from Ottawa to Government House in early December. The house was eleborately decorated for Christmas. Our tour guide was very informative. It was a pleasure to see and learn about the history of the home. It is definitely worth seeing again.

What a beautiful residence! The architecture and decorating is amazing. Such a rich Saskatchewan heritage here. The Christmas decorating is fabulous and worth touring! There will be a special family event being held at Government House on New Years Day to kick off the150th birthday for Canada.

This beautiful building is a very important piece of Saskatchewan's history. It was Saskatchewan's Lt. Governor's residence and office for many years. Now it is a museum with beautiful furnishings and a very interesting history. There are guided tours and special teas held throughout the year. The Lt. Gov. holds a New Years Day Levee here each January 1st. Tours... More

I believe everyone who visits Regina should visit this attraction. I'd say it is a must see if you want to see... More
