Have lived in Summerside for two years and would never have thought of visiting the Fox Halll of Fame had it not been for friends visiting. Super interesting place, an important part of Summerside history explained by passionate young guides.

Want the best butter-beer, strawberry shortcake many choices of flavour mixtures including true chocolate ice creams served and seated in old fashioned parlours and even outdoor seating. What a treat!

The fox trade on the Island was a very important part of the island's history and this tiny museum documents its beginning , the period when it flourished and ultimate decline. For history buffs it is worth a short stop.

The International Fox Museum is a very detailed and respected history of the Industry and we were very interested in the Industry with what we learned.

This is a one room museum but gives a bit of history behind the fox trade on PEI. There was a guided tour with a knowledgeable guide who answered all of your questions.
