“Very good Irish Moss Exhibit!”
Reviewed 18 December 2012

Every year, while on vacation in PEI, my wife stocks up on Irish Moss-based products, including, face cream, hand cream, lotion and after shave cream for me. They also make excellent Christmas gifts and friends and family truly enjoy these seaweed products.

The history of how the seaweed is gathered from the sea shore using draft horses is quite unique. It's worth the visit!

“All about seaweed”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

A lot of the world’s supply of Irish Moss comes from PEI, particularly this area around Miminegash, and harvesters gather it from the beach using horses. It then ends up being used in ice cream and lots of other foods. This small museum tells the history of this important ingredient. There was a great little video and though the sound could have been a bit louder it did a good job telling the story.

There is also a cafe attached to the museum but the service was so poor - cafe staff stood around chatting to either friends or relatives and we were ignored so we left. Pity about that as the dessert cake made with seaweed sounded interesting.
