About:
The Roedde House Museum is the city’s only heritage house museum, and introduces you to the life of an immigrant family in Vancouver at the turn of the twentieth century. Designed by the famed Francis Rattenbury in 1893 (Provincial Legislature Buildings, Empress Hotel, original Vancouver Courthouse) who was a close friend of the Roedde family, this fully-restored Victorian home operates year round, allowing guests to come and discover the original architecture and artefacts dating back to the late 1800’s. Gustav Roedde (pronounced Row-dee) came to Vancouver from Germany, after a long journey across North America, with his family in tow to set up the first book-binding and printing shop in the lower mainland. “Take it to the Roedde’s” became a hallmark statement for residents and businesses across town, anytime printing or binding needed to be done.
Tours: For seasonal hours, please call (604).684.7040, or check online at www.roeddehouse.org Every Sunday, year round, from 1:00pm to 4:00 pm we host our tea and tour special where we invite guests to come to the house for a guided tour and then enjoy tea and cookies in our parlour for a lovely and relaxing afternoon.
Rentals: Private rentals of the house are available for weddings, receptions, parties, meetings, photo shoots, and films. The main floor of the house is available to guests and can comfortably seat 35, or accommodate 45-50 people while standing and mingling. We have full wheelchair accessibility around the main floor, and a working kitchen for catering. As an intimate and unique location for any sort of event, we are always happy to work with guests to suit their needs.
