We had a wonderful tour of the Randall House Museum. The curator is so knowledgeable and was willing to answer to all of our questions. She is such a great storyteller and made the items come to life.

Randall house needs a little help from the Province to spruce it up. However our guide more than made up for the somewhat dilapidated state of the museum with her narrative and enthusiasm. Keep up the good work. Worth a visit.

I learned so much about the history of the settlers, how they made their clothes and their lifestyle. The museum was so well displayed with original furnishings and clothing.
