  • the best part of the museum is the curator who spend time telling stories and answering questions both before and after our exploration of the exhibits. Like many small museums the displays are not...

  • So this is for Pelee in general... We came over with bikes only. It's a nice place, but not a lot to do here other than bike or Sun. The winery was not open when we came. There are few gift shops, a restaurant and a few fast food counters. Beaches on the east side are nice. No services campground had nice first come first serve lots and they are in trees and on grass - quite nice. There is a store on the campground, but it wasn't open when we first visited. The bike trails are just rough gravel and grass, through bush they aren't too bad. This trail was on the east side, paralleling East Beach Road. This trail was not a stone-dust surface like most. For biking, you can find a paved route, but you might end up on gravel. Gravel roads are fairly rough, especially for race bikes. We'll likely return for a weekend of camping and biking.
  • Very informative regarding Pelee Island's history. Lots of artifacts.
