  • Historical site. Good explaining on what happened. Could make surrounding area more attracting.
  • Came here in the summer and absolutely love how people were dressed in costumes and living out the lives of those in the 1800s to 1900s ! People were playing chess and playing croquet
  • A great history lesson of P.E.I and how Canada became a country!
  • Some parts are under renovation when I visited. Picture-worthy but nothing out of the ordinary.
  • Very great historical Canadian landmark.
