Lighthouse and Museum


The Wood Islands Lighthouse and Museum is now closed for the season except by appointment, for groups, and for pre-arranged bus tours. 

Year after year, Island tourist operators and museums’ people (just off their “fam” tours) say that the Wood Islands Lighthouse is PEI’s best Lighthouse experience.  Come see for yourself!  And the best NEW news is that DISNEY  has just chosen us for its on-shore excursions from their cruise ships.  They told us that we were “market ready” and that comment coming from none other than DISNEY says lots about the experience you’ll find with us.  you won’t be disappointed.
