Enjoyed the visit to Betune's childhood home. Well maintained and furnished with items from that period. Museum has interesting information on his life. Staff very friendly and informative. Worth a visit.

We missed this attraction because we arrive at 4:05 pm. The site is only open between 10 -4. This is a national historic site, why isn't it open when the tourist are there at least till 5.

Really learned a lot about Dr. Bethune. So glad there is a memorial of some kind in his honour. The Chinese people revere his name and children learn about him in school - I wish the same thing occurred here.

Worth a visit to have a look at the memorabilia of Norman Bethune's life and adventures, and an interesting glimpse at what Gravenhurst looked like in the early 1900's. A definite 'go to' spot for those interested in the history of the area, or Bethune's legacy and what makes him a hero to Mainland China.
