Childhood home of General James Wolfe, victor of the Battle of Quebec (1759)

Explore this fascinating house, the childhood home of General James Wolfe. Discover the dramatic battle that won America for the British and learn of Wolfe's tragic death, in our exhibition.

Travel back in time and see the house as it appeared in the 1730s when James Wolfe and his family lived here. Fall asleep on our replica 18th-century bed, or take your chances with Mrs Wolfe’s ‘cure for consumption’ in the kitchen.

Afterwards sit back and relax with a cup of tea in Mrs Wolfe’s charming 18th-century garden.
