Ross House, which served as the first post office in Western Canada, is one of the last remaining examples of Red River frame architecture in Winnipeg. The museum hosts an interpretive exhibit as well as rooms set to reflect the life of the Ross family when their home served as the post office. Ross House Museum provides a glimpse into the operation of the early postal service in Western Canada, as well as 1850s homestead life, Métis history, and the lives of the Ross family.
The museum is currently open, but interpreters will be conducting tours OUTSIDE due to COVID-19 restrictions. While we understand that half the fun of visiting Ross House is looking at the museum’s collection, interpreters have done their best to bring the experience out onto the safety of the porch.
We have outdoor exhibits dedicated to members of the Ross family as well as their iconic Red River Frame House.
Open Wednesday to Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. from June 1 to August 31
