Reasonable hours, friendly and knowledgeable staff and a wonderful "house" museum. The Ross collection of North American antiques has many fine period pieces. The items displayed from the Ross' world travels are as interesting as they are varied and diverse. Splendid as always!

This is an exceptionally good local museum with a fascinating story behind the collection of beautiful furniture and paintings, many of which are sourced in New Brunswick including a chair once owned by Benedict Arnold. Highly recommended for those interested in history and decorative arts.
