About the Museum:

Built in 1882, the Daly House is a small Victorian mansion nestled in the heart of Brandon.  Originally the home of two of Brandon’s prominent families – the Dalys and the Coldwells – it is now the only pre-1900 structure remaining on 18th Street, a municipal heritage site, and a fine example of Italianate architecture. This unique museum with its antique furnishings and displays such as Mutter Brother’s Grocery store transports you back in time to the 19th century the second you step through the doors.  The Museum is also the home of the Magnacca Research Center, which contains documents, photographs, maps and other archival materials related to the history of Brandon, and South Western Manitoba.

Museum Events:

February 25, 2023, 2:00 pm, Daly House Museum 2nd Floor Gallery.

Join us on Saturday February 25th at 2pm in the second floor gallery for a fascinating look at what it takes to write a non-fiction book about spies in Canada!

Independent researcher, writer, and documentary producer Tom Mitchell will be speaking on his latest project – the Kellock-Tashereau Inquiry – a 1946 Royal Commission investigated allegations by soviet defector Igor Gouzenki that Canadian spy rings were selling secrets to the Soviet Union. The incident became known as the “Gouzenki Affair”.

Standard museum admission costs to attend the event. Free for Museum Members. All funds go to supporting the upkeep of Daly House Museum and its collections. For more informaiton visit our website
