Another Summerside gem was the International Fox Museum and Hall of Fame. It is really just a large room, but the tale it reveals was totally unexpected and interesting. The docent deserves your attention for more details than the photo display. “Fox” refers to the unknown fact that at one time (1890s through the 1920s) when black and silver fox... More

The fox trade on the Island was a very important part of the island's history and this tiny museum documents its beginning , the period when it flourished and ultimate decline. For history buffs it is worth a short stop.

This is a one room museum but gives a bit of history behind the fox trade on PEI. There was a guided tour with a knowledgeable guide who answered all of your questions.

It was interesting to learn how the "Fox Industry" got started on P.E.I . At one time it became the top fur in the fashion industry.

The museum was fascinating and the informational video was truly worth the watch. The story of PEI's own "Gold Rush" is an interesting story to hear.
