With the limited resources available, I was deeply moved by the care and attention given to this amazing writer from this part of the world. The staff were knowledgeable and allowed us to roam as the displays speak for themselves.

This is a beautiful little house, well staged to represent the era when it was lived in from the furniture to the little touches like ladies clothing arranged around the various rooms.

This museum is actually a very large home at 375 Deschambault in St. Boniface. It reminds me of Manitoba's own Anne of Green Gables because it mirrors Gabrielle's experiences as their family made it's way through the poor times and not so poor times in this oasis called St. Boniface. Everyone should visit Gabrielle's home as it speaks to you... More

It is a really nice museum in the house of Gabrielle-Roy in the heart of old St. Boniface. It sure gives you a glimpse of the past.

As far as I know this is one of just two Manitoba author's houses that are now museums (The other is the Margaret Laurence House in Neepawa). It's interesting that Gabrielle Roy may be more well known in Quebec than she is in her home province of Manitoba, but I think more English-speaking Canadians should celebrate her remarkable literary legacy....

Moving historical house of the famous franco-canadian writer Gabrielle Roy. Come to meet the life of this author, the struggling of the French speaking manitobains of the last Century. Visit the attic and its window from where Gabrielle use to look from, dreaming to because a famous writer.
