Well, Spring flew by! We are officially open for the 2023 Season with a great staff in place…..Curator/Operations Manager Connie Spencer, Assistant Curator Jayne Ings and summer tour guides Annabelle Hodgson and Rory Bears.
Crazy amount of work and long hours putting together new exhibits, along with favorite permanent exhibits that were taken apart for the new flooring to go down.
The 2023 exhibits are:
First Floor – The post office, Shipping, Mi’Kmaq, The Lobster Shanty, Rifles from 1780-WW1, 220th Anniversary of the Brudenell Pioneers
Second Floor – 150 years since PEI joined Confederation, Guess What it is?, Women’s Fashion from 1840’s – 1940’s, The old General Store and the one room schoolhouse.
Third Floor – Permanent exhibit of the caretakers apartment
We’re super proud of and in love with all of our exhibits at the Museum this season… but two of the biggest new ones are the Lobster Shanty and the woman’s fashion exhibit… pictured below.
