  • Gorgeous house in a Very peaceful area with a stunning garden and relaxing water view. Was closed for the long weekend but definitely enjoyed the exterior and had the garden all to ourself ❤️  more »
  • The building was under construction so unable to really take it in. I was able to walk on the sidewalk around it, but not the actual grounds as they were fenced off.  more »

  • Province House National Historic Site is undergoing renovations right now. However, there are multiple beautiful parks with intriguing monuments around that still justify a visit. This spot is the brain, heart and soul of Charlottetown.
  • Closed for repairs and renovations while we were there. A virtual tour booth was available for tourist for free. Local actors in period costume perform historical reenactments in park outside of Province House to mitigate disappointment of tourists who wanted to see historical site.
