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

Loved the old furniture, settings, the conservatory. Great tour, really friendly people. Got a good taste of the history of the buildings and the people who had resided there. Entertaining.

We had a tour of this charming,elegant building and enjoyed it thoroughly.The inside is so well preserved and it's interesting to see the era.the building isn't huge so it takes about a half hour to go through it. I believe everyone who visits Regina should visit this attraction. I'd say it is a must see if you want to see... More

I recently attended a reception at Government House in Regina, Saskatchewan. I found the staff to be courteous. Upon entering we were guided to the reception room and offered a glass of wine. There were a number of senior folks present. While there can never be sufficient seating at a gathering of this type, what would help is if there... More

My mother was in a nursing home next door and this was our favourite place to visit. The Commissionaires are very friendly and knowledgeable about the artifacts in the building. The grounds are immaculate and always have beautiful flowers.

I have lived near Regina for many years and never visited Government House in all that time. I am very glad I have rectified this recently. There is much to look at in the house and if there is an interest Victorian teas are available, and I hope to partake of soon. You can have a guided tour or go... More

Was nice to see so many rooms open to the public, beautifully restored. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and we were able to look into the vault to see all the dishes and hear the story behind it - our understanding is that normally this is not open for public viewing but it is an anniversary year. Grounds were... More

We attended the Government House Historical Society Antique Auction this past weekend. I was able to also enjoy the historic building and contents and appreciate the well-manicured grounds. For visitors to Regina, the capital of the province, it is worth noting that this was the historic home of the Lt. Governor in charge of the entire Northwest Territories which, in... More

This building first served as the Lt governor residence and is decorated as it would have been then. It's a great place to experience and learn some Saskatchewan history. If you have more than 1 family, call ahead and book a tour guide for your group. I felt our kids got more out of the visit with the knowledgeable guide... More
