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 many news clippings and reproductions of original letters, bills, and previous treatments pre insulin. When... 更多
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.
We went there because my daughter had a school project. We have been there before just to expand our general knowledge. The guide was really nice and she understood why we were there and helped us a lot. We could also purchase some stuff she could use for her project at the end of the tour.
This was a fascinating place where Banting lived when he had the idea which led to the discovery of insulin. It houses the story of a fascinating and multitalented man whose ideas led to his Nobel Prize.His other achievements are described and the story of his premature death in possibly suspicious circumstances. Outside is the Flame of Hope lit by... 更多
Took the kids along to this museum. As a diabetic it was a special trip for me. Both kids (ages 7 & 10) enjoyed it just as much as I did. Had no idea that Dr. Banting was so accomplished in other areas then medicine as well. The tour guide deserves great kuddos.
Something very special happened here. Diabetes is a growing issue for all of us. What Banting achieved was outstanding, millions are alive today and contributing as they can. This house speaks to us and what it is saying goes beyond what was achieved and goes to what is achievable.
I'm diabetic but I had no idea who discovered the process in developing insulin. This is the home where Dr. Frances Banting (Sir Frances) did much of his work in discovering insulin. Our tour guide did an excellent job in providing insights and explanations into the life of Dr. Banting. He was a Nobel prize winner for his research yet... 更多
I took my adult ESL class to Banting House after having prepped them with a movie and talk about Mr. Banting. I did not expect to learn much new really. I thought it would be a nice review. I was happily wrong. Our guide was knowledgeable and keen to share in picture, artefact and words a plethora of information which... 更多
