One of my favourite stops in St Andrews. This lovely little museum provides a glimpse into the lives of Henry and Sarah Ross, an American couple who made St Andrews their home. Their story is one of love for each other and generosity towards friends and their community. They amassed quite a collection of art, furniture and carpets, and then bought this lovely Georgian home to house it all. Admission is free but a donation is appreciated and I would suggest nothing less than $5, it is well worth it. There is great interpretive signage throughout if you want to self-guide or staff is happy to give you a tour. I have had tours with permanent staff members and with summer students, all are excellent. My first visit this year the young lady was knowledgeable, engaging, and when I asked something she didn’t know, she insisted on finding out the answer even when I said it wasn’t necessary. There are a number of interesting places of historical interest in SA that are “free” but put this stop at the top of your list.
