“This is a gem and don't skip the video.”
Reviewed September 28, 2011

We visited off season so not everything was running but the staff was friendly and helpful and the video charming. The general store was quite interesting and Shirley makes a smooth cup of Joe. Live farm animals were a nice touch.

“An interesting look at PEI's agricultural history”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

This is one of the seven provincial museums and heritage sites operated by Museum and Heritage PEI. It’s a delightful place and we spent a very happy few hours being entertained and educated here.

The village shows what life was like in the 1890’s including the general store with the family living quarters behind and the dressmaker’s rooms upstairs. There are a blacksmith's shop, an old school house and church plus a farm with horses, pigs, rabbits, ducks and chickens and old farm machinery. There is also an old community hall where we had a simple but tasty lunch and the kids were having great fun outside making candles and playing with the water pump.

The visitor centre includes a glorious collection of old farm machinery and best of all comments made by local people - now late in life - telling what life was like in the local farms around the area.
