My family and I did not know what to expect and ended up happy and more educated about our 13th Prime Minister and his life. Quaint limitless house with 5 rooms restored and with artifacts. Cool to see a couch and bed once owned by J.A MacDonald, the phone that was a direct line to the Queen and a picture he used to irritate JFK. The guide that took us through the house was very knowledge and her stories of John, Edna and Olive were both educational and gave us a glimpse into their lives.

We were driving by on our way south to Saskatoon and thought it might be worth a stop. The house was nice, but the interesting exhibits were few in our opinion. The guide was not as knowledgeable as we would have expected in a museum with a guided tour. Even the movie running upstairs (from the NFB I think) did not have any narrative of John Diefenbaker's life... only images here and there during his funeral procession. What a letdown. If you are interested in Diefenbaker's life and this time period, I would strongly recommend you visit the Diefenbaker Canada Centre in Saskatoon. Diefenbaker is buried next to it (which our Diefenbaker House Museum guide did not know) and you can possibly see an other exhibit at the same time (there was one on forgery and counterfeit when we were there).

I imagine some would find this place a bit stuffy but I do enjoy old houses and local Canadian history so I was quite pleased

Not everyone would like this. Certainly it is not for children. Former PM John Diefenbaker lived here and you will find here some of his furniture, decorations, belongings, etc, along with photographs, caricatures, etc. I suspect that the target audience is Canadians of a certain age, who would remember Dief the Chief. Adult admission $4. Plan to spend about 30-45 mins here being guided by a university-age docent.

They have people from the historic society to help answer questions. A nice way to kill half an hour
