The Province House is one of the Historical Sites to visit while in Prince Edward Island in Canada. Recognized as the birthplace of the Canadian Confederation, it has been the seat of the provincial legislature of Prince Edward Island since 1847. It was officially proclaimed as a National Historic Site in July 1983, and is currently under the protection and care of Parks Canada. Today, it remains to be the focal point of political decisions and activities in the region.
The Province House is a landmark in Charlottetown and is situated at Great George Street, which has been designated as a National Historic Streetscape in the area. It is visited by over 100,000 people every year. It had undergone an extensive restoration project between 1979 and 1983 to retain the splendor and beauty back when the building was first established, complete with antique furnishings and decorations reminiscent of that period. Daily tours are provided in both English and French around most of the Province House. However, there are still certain areas that remain to be off-limits to the general public, particularly when the Legislative Assembly is in session. One of the highlights of the tour is the audio-visual presentation entitled 'The Great Dream' which showcases the different events and highlights that occurred during the Charlottetown Conference.
The Province House is open to the general public all year round. Its hours of operation are between 830 in the morning and 5 in the afternoon.
