We have been coming to Prince Edward Island every year since 1998. One of the first things we like to do every year is visit Province House. . Although this year we had to wait until our second visit to town on Tuesday, since it is no longer open on weekends. There is no charge to visit. You visit at your own pace. There are guides to answer your questions. The first thing you must do before visiting the building is watch the 17 minute movie wonderfully narrated by Laurier LaPierre. I love this movie. Some years I make more than one visit to this building just to see the movie again. I am not Canadian, but after viewing this movie, I always very proud of my country's neighbor to the North.
Everybody, but certainly every Canadian, should visit this building and "walk the same halls" as did John A. Macdonald, George-Etienne Cartier, and the other founders of Canada as they had the first debates that lead to the formation of Canada. It is wonderful to see the room where these debates took place. You can also view the beautiful library, the clerk's office and the chamber where the Prince Edward Island legislature still meets. There are also a couple of rooms with picture and displays to read. At the end you might want to see the movie again and/or visit the gift shop.
