Composed of two parts, the memorial hall and the former residence, it is two independent buildings. Tickets are two prices, the cheap ones can only visit the memorial hall, and you have to pay to visit the former residence. The majority of tourists are Chinese, which is an idea of the past years.
Ontario is the hometown of the famous doctor Bethune. This house is completely transformed into an exhibition hall and memorial hall, which is maintained by the government. There are many materials about Bethune, and some domestic memorial contents are displayed.
Doctor Bethune's influence in the eyes of the Chinese people is still very high. The heavy snow day and night changed the appearance of the outside world. It feels a bit cold for Doctor Bethune sitting outside!
The Bethune Memorial National Historic Site is located in the small town of Gravenhurst, Toronto. Most Chinese who come to Ontario will come here to take a look. The memorial is managed by the National Parks Service of Canada. It is free to visit and has a dedicated commentary. The study and bedroom downstairs are kept as they were when Bethune lived in his lifetime, and the second floor is an exhibition of Bethune's deeds. Bethune is also well-known in Canada and loved by others. Everyone in Gravenhurst is proud of him. The former residence of Bethune is also a place with beautiful scenery and exquisite decoration. The green lawn surrounds it, giving people a sense of tranquility. In autumn, when the wind blows up, the land is golden and extremely beautiful.
To commemorate Dr. Bethune, an old friend familiar to the Chinese people, in 1973, the Canadian Federal Government invested in the purchase of Bethune's birth house. The house was renovated according to the original appearance of the house when Bethune was born, and the Bethune House Museum was built and listed as a national historical site in Canada .
