Dalnavert Museum and Visitors’ Centre is a national historic site that is one of the finest examples in Western Canada of Queen Anne Revival architecture. Built in 1895, this ornate Victorian mansion nestled in the heart of Winnipeg features a “day in the life” feel as it transports you back in time to the 19th century. The house is surrounded by our historic gardens.

Notes from "Haunted Canada VisitList"

This Queen Anne Revival mansion was once home to former Manitoba premier, Police Magistrate and lawyer Sir Hugh John Macdonald and his family. Similar to other people in the Victorian era, the Macdonald family was fascinated by the paranormalOuija boards and methods of communicating with spirits were a popular post dinner parlour game. Surprisingly, Winnipeg was known as a hub of paranormal activity at the time the Macdonald’s were at DalnavertTo this day Dalnavert hosts spiritualist and paranormal investigations the weeks leading up to Halloween and around Christmas. Are there ghosts in the mansion still trying the connect with the living? There have been reports throughout the years of mysterious footsteps on the floors above and the smell of flowers when there are none in the building
