“Great place to view local contribution to military history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

The Museum is but a few minutes walk down the main road from the Kensington Railway building and Island Stone Pub.

Situated next to the town Royal Canadian Legion Hall (similar to the US "American Legion" and VFW "Veteran of Foreign Wars"), the museum looks and is small, but is packed with artifacts. It has 2 floors, and the circular layout helps to display the vast amount of memorabilia.

No admission fee as its set up and maintained by volunteers, but there is a donations drop-box in the form of a hollowed out bomb. I think it's worth donating 5 or 10 bucks )or even a bit more) for what they have on display there.

It is not open year-round, but seasonally from June to September, daily from 9:30am-4:30pm with some by appointment up to the end of November.

Stop in, spend time with history, and then enjoy a walk up to the center of a small PEI town.

“Do not miss!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

Went with my parents, sister in law and three nephews (6,9,10). The kids loved looking at the uniforms, my parents the context history and my sister in law, the letters from soldiers during WWI and WWII. My brother has served in the military as a Peacekeeper so we may be more interested than most but this museum is a real gem. Better than most military museums. It is amazing what they can exhibit in such a small space. Well worth the time spent. Will go back again the next time I visit PEI. Thanks to the Legion for doing such a great job educating the public and honouring brave men and women.
