Mariners Park Museum explores the many ways the inhabitants of Prince Edward County have earned their living from the surrounding waters from fishing and ship building through ice harvesting and rum running. The lighthouse relocated from False Duck Island beckons visitors to the site, where they can also explore Fort Kente and enjoy a picnic in the park.
More than 50 shipwrecks have been located in the waters surrounding Prince Edward County and the Mariners Park Museum has become the home of many treasures retrieved during early diving expeditions.
Local tips: The Mariner’s Museum holds war time artifacts, racing memorabilia, treasures from a variety of sunken ships and history of prohibition rumrunners. If you like local history this is a must see.
