Packed full of memorabilia in a small museum. We learned so much about this incredible doctor and his discovery. He had many other talents and interests. Fascinating story. He did so much in such a short lifetime. The grounds of the museum are impressive too....More

As we all know someone who has been affected by diabetes, the Banting house has such great information and educational value. It’s a must see for all, Londoners especially as we should be so proud we have a great pillar of education within our community.

This is a small but engaging museum. What really made the experience was the enthusiasm of my guide Jeanne, I would like to say a big thank you to her for making my day :)

I was so looking forward to seeing Banting House. The history, the art, the architecture, and the magic of a true renaissance man. So disappointing. The original medical office and Banting's bedroom are well presented and fascinating to view. Through the other rooms there are...More

The volunteers and staff are very accommodating. I took a class of 32 adult learners who I prepped beforehand so they were ready to ask good questions and understood what was going on.
