Well worth a side trip. This chateau is actually a semi-detached grand dwelling (and grandly furnished) owned by 2 brothers in the late c.19/early c.20. An historical anomaly near Olympic Park & Botanical Gardens. NB There is no line to skip.

My husband and I I visited the house after a visit to the botanical gardens nearby. We were given an IPad which explained the history and decorations room by room. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.

A beautiful mansion, well maintained, and full of interesting artefacts. Well worth taking the bus out to its location, east of the downtown area.
