As a teacher, I like to visit museums, large or small. I really appreciated my visit as we got a personal tour of the house. Inscriptions on the walls in chronological order explain the Desjardins family's history. There are also pictures, books and other historical...More

Discovered this using trip advisor. It was a very interesting tour given by Patrick into the history of Desjardins which were the first credit union in North America.

I gave 5 star because I think it is worthy going there to hear about Alphonese Desjardins' unselfish story. He founded the credit unions back to his area. This house in modern eyes is not fency, but was a wealthy and high-class house in its...More

This a small museum/house, but extremely well done. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and truly passionate about the history of the Desjardins family. She was actually animated enough to keep our 7 y.o. engaged for the approximately one hour tour. The museum is about...More

The visit to the house was part of a guided tour of Levi during a Storytelling Conference. I had no idea who Alphonse-Desjardins was, and realized half way into the talk that my credit union in Vancouver is connected to him. Who knew! I enjoyed...More
