This is a hands-on, self-guided tour of the fox industry on PEI. It was very interesting to learn how the industry developed and what caused its demise. It offers an opportunity to touch fox pelts, too. Entrance is by donation.

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.
