The house and the interior is very well kept. It is worth the 30 minutes it take to get to know the former owner and his Lifestyle.

A beautifully preserved home from 1862 with many original artificts and furniture. An amazing time capsule within a lovely setting. Special exhibits and speakers as well as tours provide something for everyone. Aurora should be proud of its National Historic Site.

It is both a fabulous old Victorian historical home and a funky, eclectic museum of medicine. Do check it out.

I come here often to walk in the back as I live in the neighbourhood. I have been inside and it is a wonderful period house. It also has the Koffler medical museum inside as well. A good place to take the family.

If you are a history buff this a well maintained Museum. Knowledgeable tour guides. Very interesting displays. I had seen some interesting Military photos in a closet the Young Lady (tour guide) took the time to take them out of the closet to show me

What a lovely place to pop in for a visit. An historic house with it's history written out for you. I visited during the Pan Am games and spent a lovely afternoon In the garden watching a tennis match with the Gold and Silver medalists.

Hillary House is an icon in Aurora for the Historical Society, and rightly so. There are so few historical homes in Canada that still have the original furnishings intact, and this is one of them. It is truly a treasure. The guides are able to...More
