Welcome to Founder's Hall

Founder's Hall is one of Prince Edward Island's highly popular attractions, located at the Historic Charlottetown Waterfront. Also known rather grandly as Canada's Birthplace Pavilion, the Hall is a well-designed heritage attraction set in a restored 1906 building that previously housed a CN rail car repair shop. The Hall incorporates state-of-the-art technology with history, allowing visitors to enjoy interactive exhibits, holovisuals, various exciting displays and an absorbing 'Time Travel Tunnel' that allows visitors to trace the development of Canada and its provinces. The aim of Founder's Hall is to celebrate the spirit of co-operation shown by the Fathers of the Confederation, and to educate the public about Canada's heritage. Far from boring, the exhibits and displays continue to delight visitors, and for those tired of all the culture, a boutique selling island crafts, memorabilia and souvenirs is also within its walls.
