Owner description: The birthplace of Confederation and the seat of PEI's provincial legislature since 1847, Province House National Historic Site is Charlottetown's most significant cultural landmark. Walk in the footsteps of the Fathers of Confederation as you learn about the history of this magnificent example of neo-classical architecture and see how it remains a centre of political life for Islanders today.

“Great piece of history”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

As a Canadian interested in history this is a place to visit. Would recommend to go on a tour to learn details - there isn't much to see or learn independently. Outside of the building period actors roam about and talk with visitors. Beside province house at noon each day is a free show of music and dance. The show builds throughout the 45 minutes - very talented and fit singers/dancers.

“Wonderful Historic Site”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Loved this. So glad I got to see the room where the Charlottetown Conference was held - fantastic. The guide was very informative and friendly - answered all of our questions. The tour is free and it's about 30 minutes. I wish we could have stayed for the movie - probably would have liked it too. This would be great for kids. Hope everyone goes to learn a little about Canada's history.

“Historic Site”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

This is where the notion of joining the provinces to form Canada came together. Being from the USA, I learned a lot about North American history that I had not learned in school.
