Saw this on tripadvisor so stopped to check it out along with the hockey museum. Wonderful place. The staff were friendly and helpful, telling us about the history of Halliburton House and the hockey museum. Original furnishings throughout. Love antique furniture. Plenty to see. Well worth viewing along with the hockey museum section. Everything was displayed well. Small gift shop... More

We originally came here to see the hockey museum, but also participated in the guided tour of the house. Nicely restored building with many original pieces. The staff were informative and obviously care about this site.

The two women and young man that admitted us to and showed us around the home and hockey museum were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth a look.

We visited here during a road trip of Nova Scotia. This is a charming old home that still has some of the unique contents of its former owner. The guides are very knowledgeable and shared many stories, including showing us a delightful secret compartment in a desk. They knew lots of details. There seems to an an attached hockey museum...

I was part of a group that visited the Museum during a recent car show. It was interested to learn the history of the house and the people who lived there.

Charming mansion with great tour guides imparting their knowledge of its famous owner. Interesting ties to the birth of hockey, the Fortress of Louisbourg, the British Parliament, Victorian post mortem photography, and 19th century English literature.

Due to my mother working here i got in for free. Its a very nice museum and really shows how the family lived. If you decide to visit, i should warn you: The Portrait in the front room always seems to be looking at you ;)

I live in the town and love walking through the grounds of Haliburton, especially in the fall with all the different coloured leaves. There is a fee to enter the house itself but just walking the trails around the property is free and the beauty is breath taking. You won't regret it. TIP: Need a good place for family photos?...

The Haliburton House has a fascinating story, well-documented and told by friendly, knowledgeable staff. Beautiful furnishings and impressive grounds. The hockey museum has some very interesting items and again, we were impressed by the knowledge and passion the young guide. Very worthwhile experience.
