The museum was an excellent choice for a rainy June day. My cousin from the UK found the video and exhibits really interesting as she knew little of PEI's history. Definitely well worth a visit.

Interesting coverage of a topic we had known nothing about. Friendly staff. As part of a very overstuffed day, we went through it in under an hour. Even a more careful look would not have taken 90 minutes. So interesting, but only for that long.

Such a lovely group of Acadian tour and museum personal. They were great with our kids and extremely knowledgeable about all things Acadian. It's worth the stop.

This was an unplanned visit. What a great surprise and fascinating education. Really informative. So friendly and outstanding exhibits. The history of Acadians tells of a people who overcome unbelievable difficulties and hardships and it is an important part of our Canadian history
