We decided to visit this place today as they are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. You have to be impressed when you see the collection of cars from the early 1900's up through the super sized vehicles of the 60's, 70's and 80's. For those who remember Don Messer, you will see two of his vehicles. Of course Elvis's... More

Seen this place just passing by, decided to stop in for a look, and these cars are amazing! A little history posted about the cars and some of these cars are fully restored, turns out after talking to the man who restores them that they actually drove them to the museum, and the majority of the cars still actually run!...

Saw this place on the way to our hotel. Went out for a day drive and decided to pull in. From the outside it isn't very impressive, but once in it, is very amazing how many cars were inside. The man at the desk is the son of the man who did most of the renovations to the vehicles. We... More

My husband and I visited this car museum earlier today. The smell (I think it was smoke) when we entered was awful. The cars were okay, but some not restored and rusty. I used the bathroom and the sink had not been cleaned in a long time! Everything in the museum was extremely dusty. For $8.50 each, it wasn't worth... More

Absolutly loved this stop along our vacation. Highly recommend for any age. My 3 yr old didn't want to leave, we went around 3 times and could have spent all day there. Only wish there was a gift shop. So much stuff there we wanted to bring home with us.

Not being old car buffs, we had never stopped at this museum before. We should have! The building exterior looks small but in actual fact, is very large, extending in the back. We were impressed with the wide variety of vehicles, the quality restoration and the fact that most of them had been owned by Islanders. The exterior children's playground... More

if you love classics - it's worth it . . . if you aren't into cars it's definitely not worth the time. The museum has an impressive collection of cars, and there is a fair bit of history with each car. however the lighting is terrible and the history is hard to read. there is Elvis music playing which at...

The Car Life museum is an interesting spot to check out during your stay on PEI.Some really unique pieces and displays. Its inexpensive as well. Check it out, especially if you like antique cars.
