Due to Covid19, the Margaret Laurence Home will not be open to the public this summer.
If you are a fan of Margaret’s novels and are making the trip especially to visit the house, we would like to make it possible for you to visit. You may call one of the volunteer numbers listed here or reach us by email, let us know when you plan to visit and we will try to make that happen.
For History Buffs and Literary Lovers, The Margaret Laurence Home is a MUST SEE! One of Manitoba’s Star Attractions and now a Provincial Heritage Site and Level 2 Museum, the turn of the century house is the childhood home and living memorial to the world renowned author Margaret Laurence. The Home is now a cultural centre where such events as writers’ workshops, book launches and Elder Hostel education programs take place.
Gifts from Margaret’s children include her typewriter, doctoral robes, award certificates and much more. Many books, papers, magazines, letters, video and audio tapes are available for research or to peruse. Gift Shop on site.
