Visited here in July 2021. My tour guide, Naomi was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Lots of great artifacts on display. Beaverbrook House itself is beautiful, love the high ceilings and center staircase, it's really a work of art, they just don't make them like that anymore. Well worth an hour of your time to tour this home.

Beaverbrook House is the childhood home of Max Aitken, Lord Beaverbrook. It’s a beautiful house, with the banister staircase being a particular lovely attraction. There is much to discover about one of New Brunswick's most influential and noteworthy sons. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and have lots of little stories to tell about Max and his family where they lived there.. It was originally a parsonage for the local Presbyterian Church, as Max's father was a minister...

Overall we were underwhelmed. Information provided by our guide was a bit wishywashy and the overall information in the house did not cover Lord Beaverbrook’s life or achievement (we actually found out more at another museum in Grande-Anse). Could be improved.

We stopped in a Friday morning when there was just one young man working. We paid our $5 per person. He walked us around the house, but he was not able to answer many questions. I think he knew a script. Two more women arrived and then we all sort of dispersed. Wish he could have spent more time telling us about Lord Beaverbrook’s life. We knew his roles in Britain, but nothing on his early life or how he gained his money to become influential. House was not described in much detail.

Very much enjoyed our afternoon tea. Nicely presented with a great atmosphere giving us a little history of Lord Beaverbrook. Both volunteers and actors were friendly and helpful answering our questions. The tea, scones and sweets were a nice treat as well. Would highly recommend for others to experience this attraction.

Interesting architecture, charming antique decor with friendly tour guides and actors. A very enjoyable afternoon with a delicious tea and entertainment for a reasonable price ($12).

This was a wonderful afternoon. We were met by a great actor who represented a historical figure closely connected to Lord Beaverbrook in his early years when still in the Miramichi area, then we were greeted by a tour guide in costume who gave us some background on Beaverbrook's contribution to WWII in his position of Minister of War Production, then we were escorted to Beaverbook's WAr Office, where another actor played Lord Beaverbrook. A lovely tea with fresh scones and sweets followed, along with the actors, who stayed in character throughout. A great deal for only $12!
