“A True Canadian Hero”

Bethune Memorial House National Historic Site
Ranked #7 of 35 things to do in Gravenhurst
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 September 2017

Bethune House is beautifully restored and the museum is full of rich information, photos and displays of surgical instruments designed by Dr. Bethune. Very interesting and a great homage to a man who is revered in China but barely known here. Must be seen.

Well done. Many people do not know the role Norman Bethune played in the health of the world and in the history of Canada. This is very well done and extremely interesting. A must see.

This is a place that holds such rich history. You learn so much from the displays! They set up the pricing in a weird way though. There is the regular fee- you get admission to the main building and the first floor of his house only. The enhanced one you get o view the second floor, see a 10 minute film and get a photo opportunity with a cardboard like version of Norman Bethune. Neat place though.

It was located in the residential area but very educational and lots to learn.
I am glad I took my teenage children. They have learned the base of Canadian Health Care system and also humanitarian.
