Our pedicab driver was so knowledgeable about the Emily Carr House, the fact that ghosts are still known to frequent this property and the grounds were absolutely stunning. It is amazing to hear the history of Emily Carr as one of the original Stakeholders and Artist's that lived in Victoria. Along the side of her home sits what used to... 更多
Whether you are an artist in your own right on a pilgrimage or just into Victorian homes you must visit the childhood home of Canadian icon Emily Carr to pay homage to this great female artist... they have a selection of some of her writings and art reproductions to bring back with you as a momento or to give as... 更多
I finally got to Emily Carr house this summer and found it to be a little disappointing. It is an amazing piece of history but there was very little information about Emily Carr herself and very little of her artwork. The main artwork for sale was by someone else. I guess I just had a different idea of what would... 更多

This house provides a good introduction to the life and career of author and artist Emily Carr, who is probably not as well known as she deserves to be (at least outside of Canada). The 30-minute video on Carr, Georgia O'Keefe and Frida Kahlo is worth watching, very well done. Don't come here expecting to see Carr's paintings though; apparently... 更多
If you like Emily Carr this is a must. It is not earth shaking but it is a wonderful piece of Victoria/Canadian history. The residents are always friendly and willing to answer questions and they always seem busy working on something. It is well kept up and worth the 30-60 minute visit.
Old house not far from downtown and worth the walk. The yard is interesting and the old house is worth a look but if you are not an Emily Carr fan give it a miss
It is true that many Emily Carr fans make a pilgrimage to us to see her family home and birthplace... 更多

In addition to learning about Emily's life in the family home, there was an interesting video "Bone, Wind, Fire" which provides insight into the views and character of three remarkable artists, Georgia O'Keefe, Emily Carr and Frida Kahlo. Afterwards, enjoy a complimentary lemonade or tea and cookies. All in all, a relaxing way to learn more about one of Canada's... 更多

Both history buffs and art lovers will like this. The house is carefully restored and shows a lot of Emily Carr's life. Well worth the visit.
Thank you for your kind review. We are so pleased that you found your visit to us an engaging one.... 更多
I was hoping to see some Emily Carr paintings. There was one only. It was not worth paying to see. The art gallery has a few. Better to see those if Emily's paintings are the reason you are considering going. We were told by the host that nothing aside from the house itself was original. It was filled up with... 更多
