Dalnavert Museum Audio Tour Now Available
It’s July 22, 1896, and Dalnavert, the elegant Carlton Street home of of Sir Hugh John MacDonald, is buzzing. Lady MacDonald is enlisting a friend to help plan the debut of her step-daughter, Daisy, now back home from studying in England. Everyone who is anyone in Winnipeg society will be invited. Sir Charles and Lady Tupper drop in for a visit. Below stairs, Minnie, the cook, is training the new maid, Millie — and rapidly losing patience.
A new way to experience Dalnavert, the Dalnavert Museum Audio Play is an immersive audio experience that allows you to do more than just walk through the rooms. Now, you can experience an actual day in the life of the people who lived there—the family, their servants, even their dog, Dandy. The stereo recordings of the actors playing the scenes in the actual rooms bring them back to vivid life. Sir Hugh regales the dinner party with an amusing story; Daisy shows off her piano skills; Millie has an accident in the kitchen.
There is an $11 charge for the audio play (includes regular admission).
