Program Description

Online education for students during the time they are unable to visit Roedde House Museum in person. Available in October, this will include a 2 part video and online activities which may be downloaded and used in conjunction with the video for a full learning experience. All will be accessible through the 'Education' page of our website:

Video:  Watch as our School Program docents take you on a tour through the Museum to discuss the stories and day to day objects which showcase what life in Victorian Vancouver was like for an immigrant family. Roedde House Museum is the 1893 home of Vancouver's first bookbinder, Gustav Roedde and his family. The House has been authentically restored to reflect life during the 1890s.

Online classroom activities: PDF projects which may be downloaded and which cover the topics "Learning from Architecture" and "Exploring Family History".

Big Ideas
  • Immigration and multiculturalism continue to shape Canadian society and identity.
  • COVID Precautions

    The museum is open for small self-guided tours (up to 5 people per hour on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays from 1-4pm). An in-person tour for students with their family or bubble would be possible in this way (tickets must be purchased online).

    School tours are currently suspended for the 2020/2021 school year. Online learning opportunities are provided in place of our regular school tours.
