Visited just before it closed, but lovely young docent showed us around; played little games with 4-year-old granddaughter. A fun 45-minute visit. For many years, several generations of the Rose family lived in the house, making few alterations. Wine, cheese and cider purveyors nearby :)

Had a nice tour of this well done museum. Went out of our way but glad we did. We are seasoned museum visitors but still saw some new things here! Good overview of pioneer/homesteading life in Prince Edward County. Admission is by donation. Wine and hard cider tasting rooms nearby.

This simple but charming museum is located in a modest German settlers farmhouse, built in the early 1800s from salvaged timber from the community’s original Lutheran Church, and inhabited by 5 generations of the Rose family ~ United Empire Loyalists… This charming museum holds an Annual FISH FRY in August… One of the five unique museums, located throughout The County....

Rose House is a seasonal museum located in North Marysburgh Ontario. It is the family homestead of the Rose Family. Many of the descendants of the original Rose Family still live in the area and volunteers at this location. I love the Rose House because it is homey and well interpreted. The Friends host several events during the season, try... More

We were biking in the area (Waupoos Marina has free bikes you can use) and decided to stop in. We were greeted by a very friendly employee who spent a lot of time with us explaining all the exhibits and the history. Very glad we stopped and went in!
