There is a ton of past and current history with a visit to the Province House National Historic Site of Canada. There is a great introductory film clip covering the beginnings of the Canadian nation. You then get to view the actual rooms where meetings were held with the representatives from the various Canadian provinces in 1864. You also see the room where the current PEI representatives meet twice a year. There are also Canadian Park rangers there that provide a wealth of information and are willing to provide answers to any questions you have. Another benefit is that there is no admission cost.
