We arrived on a Saturday and The Prince Edward Island Regiment Museum was closed. There were some military tanks & vehicle outside that we were able to see.

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.

Not expecting much in this quaint town on Prince Edward Island, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of displays that told the story of the ever-evolving regiment from the counties of PEI. Dating from the Northwest Rebellion in 1885 (had never heard of it) to modern wars, the uniforms and weapons are top notch and well preserved.... More

Wife and I went here on a rainy day and found the museum to be easy to find in the heart of the waterfront and the city. Great amount of material and information in a small area. I have read a lot about the regiment and found the museum to be very good but there should be a dedicated staff... More

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!

My family went to visit the regiment museum. When you walk in there is a sign saying you need to sign in but there wasn't anyone in sight. We were finally told where to go. The area is quite cramped but the displays are interesting.

This was a short 15 minute stop along the boardwalk. The placards offer just enough information to allow you to envision the times.

I went with a friend and it was really badly annonced. There was nobody at the door to show us where it was or to explain us what was the Museum. We had to find it on our own. In the Museum, there was a BIG lack of information about the objects. Besides that, all the objects that were there... More
