Due to COVID-19, we have decide to close all of our provincial museums until further notice, effective immediately. Thank you for your understanding. We know that the current global situation is causing everyone stress (it's not just us stressing, is it?) so we are offering up a #MuseumMomentofZen to help calm frayed nerves: take a deep breath and enjoy this photograph of Orwell Corner Historic Village with the full bloom. Nothing like a bit of Island countryside to take the edge off.
Three of our sites remain open over the winter: the Acadian Museum in Miscouche; Beaconsfield Historic House in Charlottetown or the Eptek Art and Culture Centre in Summerside. Come for a visit - we would love to see you!
The Prince Edward Island Pottery Company was founded in 1880 by Frederick W. Hyndman. Using local materials, the company provided earthenware items the households throughout the Maritime provinces.
The provincial collection has artifacts that represent the human and natural heritage of Prince Edward Island. Each week we will be spotlighting an artifact on our social media networks. Come take a look on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
The Heritage Awards Ceremony was held Tuesday, February 19th at Beaconsfield Carriage House. See the list of this year's Award recipients
