Thoroughly enjoyed visit. We stopped by to give it a quick look and were immediately enthralled by the story of the Rosses and how they came to purchase and furnish the house with textiles, furniture, and art they found on their world travels. The house is in remarkable condition, the staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Having toured many other similar period homes on the East Coast this is perhaps the finest we have visited. This small museum is definitely worth a visit.

I was not overly interested in going to Ross Museum but what a surprise I had. The one person staffing the place was very knowledgeable about the Rosses answering every question we had on them as well as the contents of the Museum. Now it will be a must to go to every time I'm in Saint Andrews.

Reasonable hours, friendly and knowledgeable staff and a wonderful "house" museum. The Ross collection of North American antiques has many fine period pieces. The items displayed from the Ross' world travels are as interesting as they are varied and diverse. Splendid as always!

This is a small museum, packed with beautiful furniture and fascinating anecdotes about a couple of very unsual Saint Andrews' residents from a century ago. I am not a big fan of furniture, but really enjoyed this because of the stories that were associated with everything.

This is an exceptionally good local museum with a fascinating story behind the collection of beautiful furniture and paintings, many of which are sourced in New Brunswick including a chair once owned by Benedict Arnold. Highly recommended for those interested in history and decorative arts.
