Unfortunately this place is not open on Saturday. My family was really looking forward to it and all I had found for hours was “open year around” When we arrived Saturday morning they were closed. 🙁

A great local display of the P.E.I Regimental history especially during WWI, WWII and up to the present day. A must visit for those interested in the part Canada has played internationally defending our Allies during wartime and peace keeping.

Very nice for a free museum (donations accepted). Lots of stuff in a small area. There were no staff there when we went, not sure if that is normal, if you had questions you are stuck but otherwise it was very nice.

We, as US citizens, understand and study WW1 and know the sacrifices that were made before we entered the war. The attendants are very enthusiastic and accommodating to visitors. Thank you, Canada!
