“All the info you need.”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

This is a great place to go and find all the info on PEI you'll ever need to know. There are friendly people there you can ask anything. Plus it's at Peakes warf. There's great shops and a Cows ice cream there as well as a great restaurant over looking the harbor.

“Great succinct presentation of Canada's Confederation.”
Reviewed 25 August 2012

We enjoyed the presentation,with the audio included in the price of admission. I'm a historian and I learned a number of new tidbits about my country's history here. Definitely worth a visit, not too long and Really Love the Beaver on the cake in the Dominion of Canada case! Hilarious way to make a point!

“Nice tour”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

A nice little tour that takes you back in time using technology. Earphones are provided for the self guided tour that takes you through the story of Canadian confederation. The presentation is interesting and worthwhile.

“Did the tour, got the t-shirt!”
Reviewed 15 August 2012

Founders Hall is a great place to gather tour info for all of PEI. The people at the visitors' desk will also give you loads of suggestions and assistance. They have public washrooms, a gift shop and a small cafe. It is quite near Peake's Wharf and within a short walk of the main downtown sites.
We bought tickets for the 'Confederation Time Travel Tour' which was about an hour long. You get a headset and essentially walk through a narrated museum. I would recommend it to others, prior or after visiting Province House.
