There are stories that this home holds a lot of character and could be perhaps haunted. Regardless it is eventuful to venture through the home and learn all about Billy Bishop and what he did.

Excellent museum, entering the house is like stepping back in time. I am definitely going back for the Christmas special they do every year

Located on a street with other homes, it has no parking lot, but free street parking is available. Admission was $5, which includes a small booklet. The tour is self-guided.

Lots of excellent information and photographs are provided in what was his childhood home.

This museum being in the Bishop home makes it really nice. There are plenty of original items in the home and some replicas of originals (to preserve the original item, like letters). But I was disappointed when I saw little signs saying the item I was looking at wasn't actually from the home but something very much like what the family would have used.

It always is a treat to step into the past, figuratively, and see history come alive. I know that I have a deeper appreciation for and understanding of Bishop's WWI contributions as a result of this museum - and so does my daughter. I was especially impressed by how thoroughly the museum explains Bishop's later contributions to society and the RCAF, after the war. The city of Owen Sound should financially invest in this property, given the historical signifance of Bishop to Canadian history.
