I was hoping this would a be bigger display, but I was in and out in less than 5 minutes. The building is nice, and right on the water.

Definitely worth a visit if you are in Summerside. The gift shop sells beautiful local crafts at reasonable prices. The exhibit we saw Art Begets Art was displayed well and very interesting. It really captures the spirit of PEI. Staff very friendly too.
