We stumbled upon this lovely little museum as we were driving around sightseeing. We came across a park / beach, and next to it was this delightful museum. It's small, but jam packed. Next to it there's a little one room school house, that was fun to explore. A little further up a path is the house of the shipping... More

I was immediately interested when I learned about a shipbuilding museum on Canada's first island province. Knowing a little about the maritime heritage and import of the industry to the country's early settlers, I expected to be immersed in history and heritage. Imagine my disappointment when the "museum" consisted of, essentially, a hallway with some short notes written on the... More

This "museum" and house is a remarkable display of the shipbuilding past of the area. Artifacts and displays are clear and visually well presented. The Yeo House is well worth the short walk from the museum, as is the small schoolhouse on the way. In all spots, staff are friendly and filled with great information to share. Don't miss this.

We didn't stay too long at the shipbuilding museum, but I learned about all the different sorts of sailing ships there were, and about all the hard work that went into building them. The displays showing all the different types of wood that went into them was well done. We suggest, if you enjoy museums, that you purchase the Historical... More

This morning friends and I drove West from Summerside to visit The Shipbuilding Museum and Yeo House in Green Park. Although the museum is small, it contains lots of well-presented and interesting information. Who knew that there were so many different kinds of trees on the Island and that each had had its preferred use in the building of these... More

On a rainy afternoon while on vacation we decided to visit this museum and we were so glad that we did. The lady in the shipbuilding museum was so knowledgable, she had my 5 & 6 year olds listening and asking questions. They learned new things and also had fun doing it. Then off we went to the Yeo House,... More

We have been coming to PEI every year since 1998, but this was our first visit to the Yeo house and shipping museum. We purchased the PEI Heritage Passport which allows you to visit 3 out of 7 locations for $9.95. The Yeo property is one of the seven. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit starting with the the beautiful two... More

This place was difficult to find as three different references on the internet gave different information about where it is. We found a brochure about this Museum at another museum and that didn’t give any location details at all! We mentioned this to the staff when we got there and they said they're having the brochure re-printed. The Museum is... More
