Province House National Historic Site Of Canada Reviews & Ratings
Outside it looks like it has potential. This year was our second time in the last 4 years we went to Charlottetown to visit this National Historic Monument. We bought a National Parks Pass with the specific intent to visit this location. SO disappointed that it was closed, again. Maybe one day we will get to see it and I can update my rating more positively.
This would have been a nice place to visit and to take pictures at. However, it has been under renovations for at least 1.5 years and still not done. You can walk around the area as it's a nice neighbourhood.
Closed. Terrible Video Game experience replaced such an important historical landmark, how distasteful.
This is a lovely spot to draw pictures and meditate.
