"Helmcken House" Helmcken House Tip by cinthya_in_victoria

Helmcken House, Victoria: 3 reviews and 5 photos


This is the oldest house on Vancouver Island, it was built in 1852 for pioneer physician and politician Dr. John Helmcken. It's worth seeing for its furniture and artifacts from the 19th century. Audio tapes are included in the admission with actors talking the part of Helmcken and his family. Personally I felt like if being in a old western movie!!

Address: 10 Elliot, next to Royal BC Museum

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
