“A gem of a small museum!”
Reviewed 10 July 2016

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.

“Nice little step back in time”
Reviewed 2 July 2016

Another one of our stops during our day trip to St. Andrews We were greeted by Shannon upon arrival and she gave us a great insight to the home and the owners and about the surrounding history. She was very pleasant and answered our questions with extensive knowledge. We were then allowed to take a self-guided tour of the home and learn more about the owners and their collection of art, furniture and antiques from their world travels. A great place to visit if you are a history buff like us.

“nice”
Reviewed 26 June 2016

This beautiful historic house is a block away from the Sheriff Andrews house museum. The house is furnished by everything that the owners accumulated over the years from their travels around the world. The young lady that gave us a tour through the house was very knowledgeable about the Ross family etc. The furnishings are beautiful. Definitely a must see if in the area.
