We toured the house, there is a costumed docent to lead the tour. It is a rather short tour without a lot of detail of the history of the house. I would say hit or miss, depending on how much time you have.More

A good place to learn about the history of Lunenburg and of course, the house itself. The curator provided interesting information on the house's prior inhabitants and the period costumes exhibited on the second floor brought a sense of history to life. We are glad...More

The exhibits, all volunteer created and staffed (except for summer students, who are paid) give a good overview of the history of Lunenburg and can be a good place to start your visit. Admission by donation.
