After travelling to many historical house across Ontario, I have to say Glanmore is absolutely my favorite. As soon as you walk through the door you walk back in time. The home is restored to original condition from the roof to the carpets. The staff are very passionate and knowledgeable. A absolute thrill to visit :) Highly recommend it.

This is a beautiful historical site. We had a great tour with a very passionate and knowledgeable guide. It has an amazing collection of animal art and there was also an interesting travelling display about women's right to vote. We also had fun in the selfie station. A must see!!!!

I did a co-op placement here in high school and I fell in love with this place. I try to visit whenever I'm in town and have the time. It is so beautifully preserved in the height of ornate Victorian design, with an absolutely stunning collection of antiques, furniture and artwork!!

I have toured many older mansions but was thoroughly delighted with Glanmore. The interior finishes were fabulous to begin with and have been painstakingly refurbished to that original grandure. Our visit really exceeded expectations!

What a perfect finish to a great day with 7 of us being taken on a tour of Glanmore with Melissa as our guide; I felt though I was getting a sneak-peek into the lives of the Phillips family and how they lived in this grand home that is now a museum. From the grand entrance, to their Couldery Collection... More

It is always a pleasure to visit Glanmore -- the beautifully restored 19th c home of four generations of the Phillips family. The city of Belleville is to be commended for its excellent care of this National Historic site since 1999. Whether your interest is in its architecture, its art and artefacts, its portrayal of 19th century social and family... More
