The Museum is located in the "Armouries" at the corner of Water and Haviland Streets. Displays of uniforms, armaments, documents, medals, pictures, letters et al tell part of the story of Islanders and their commitment to their country in peace and war. A section devoted to the Medical Corps is very sentimental for many a visitor. There are also artifacts... More

I was impressed with the range of items and the scope of the items by era and origin. The Director and his staff have assembled an incredible number of exhibits. I, wish I had a full day. Much more if you are a history or equipment buff. Recognized the #19 Set from my Cadet Days with Can Scots in Victoria,... More

Unassuming presentation of a comprehensive collection of Canadian war memorabilia. Some emotive stories narrated by story boards but on occasion you can lose the plot as you wander around.

I intentionally visited the museum, which is located inside the Prince Edward Island Regiment building, which is an active unit. There are several pieces of equipment outside the building, including a Sherman tank. The museum holds an incredible amount of historical military memorabilia, dating from the 1700's through the War of 1812, the South African (Boer) War, First and Second... More

This is amazing because it is a free museum loaded and I mean really loaded with war memorabilia. The staff at the building were most cordial and courtesy. This by the way is an active reserve unit. You cannot imagine how much is contained in this building. The collections have been going on for years and I trust some of... More

I visited this museum for the first time in January, and was simply blown away. One of the better military museum you will visit anywhere with TONS of artifacts and information. It is laid out quite logically and chronological which is much appreciated. Even a section dedicated to peacekeeping. It is quite small, but don't let that fool you. It... More

Tucked away inside a working military base, this is a gem of details. The citizens of PEI are very patriotic and have generously donated any and all artifacts pertaining to various military operations throughout the years. It seems there has been a division from PEI (or at least several men/women) in every major military event since the 1700's. Due to... More

Truly a hidden jewel. A comprehensive collection near the boardwalk. Definitely worth a visit and then continue along the boardwalk for a pleasant afternoon.

Came in after the Nov. 11 commemoration. Looking for info on my great uncle but nobody there to inquire about him. Displays very interesting, though. Glad I dropped in.

If you are interested in military history, make sure that you visit this museum. There are some military vehicles to see as well as historic photo's and plaques.
