Our visit to the Museum was the highlight of our visit to P.E.I. We had set out to find our grandparents home and their gravesite. We had spent most of our childhood summers on the Island. Our father had passed away and we weren't sure...More

The museum was set up nicely to display the history of the area in terms of old pioneer ways. The building itself is quite interesting, dating back to the late 1880's.

Very nice museum. Had a guided tour by a very nice young lady. Quite knowledgeable and provided a couple 'nice to know' tidbits about the area. Admission was very reasonable and you don't regret paying it. Well worth the visit.

Lots of fun here taking the $5 tour with an old-timer for the first floor and a younger tour guide for the second and third floors. Both were very knowledgeable and friendly. In addition, the personal anecdotes of the older guide made the artifacts come...More

It's an old custom house and has 3 floors, narrow stairs are the only way up so for some people that could be a problem

Cluttered, neglected, disorganized. A few interesting displays; staff friendly enough but poorly trained, don't know much at all, try to be helpful but can't. Seriously in need of updating/modernizing.
