Very interesting Acadian Museum. Plenty of photographs and historical information. Lists of Acadian family names in the area dating back many years. A great video was shown in a separate room providing history during the expulsion period. Great place to visit.

An interesting little museum dedicated exclusively to the success and plight of the Acadians. There are a few exhibits and a brief documentary which provides a good overview. Worth stopping at to understand a part of Canadian history.

10 of us were travelling in Nova Scotia last month and we had seen an unfamiliar flag flying along side the Provincial flag of many homes. It was the tricolour with the golden star. People told us it was the Acadian flag and this term...More

The museum is well organized and devoted to French fact on PEI. The introductory film is a helpful start, and the exhibits are fascinating, especially the first-hand accounts of the forced exile and return. The maps are also informative. It is good to know that...More

The museum was an excellent choice for a rainy June day. My cousin from the UK found the video and exhibits really interesting as she knew little of PEI's history. Definitely well worth a visit.

Interesting coverage of a topic we had known nothing about. Friendly staff. As part of a very overstuffed day, we went through it in under an hour. Even a more careful look would not have taken 90 minutes. So interesting, but only for that long.

Your visit starts with a 15 min video explaining Acadian history in PEI. We can see how history repeats itself with the current political climate- if you don’t like a group of immigrants send them back to their country of origin, even if they are...More
