Lighthouse and Museum

Please watch this space or our Facebook page for periodic update.

Please stay stafe and practice social distancing.

Will be closed for the season on Sept 25. Consignment owners can pick up their art works at the Wood Islands Village. Please call 902-962-3761 to arrange pick up.

We would also like to offer a special thanks to the wonderful people who even under current conditions are helping us to maintain the lighthouse. 

Many thanks to Chris Stewart Precision Carpentry for the great job they did replacing windows.

A big thank you to MacPherson Builders for building disabled access, so that we can be more accessible.

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!  Recently DISNEY– yes that Disney–  chose 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.

173 Lighthouse Road just off the Ferry at Wood Islands.

Experience PEI’s hidden secrets through our Time-Honoured Kitchen; Rum Runner Den; Shipbuilding Gallery; Coastal Cavern including sea glass displays; Phantom Ship Loft; Iceboat Landing and Tower Top with stunning 360 degree view.  Grounds have lots of green parking and wide open spaces to the water and Northumberland Ferry. A maritime place to let the salt water and red cliffs speak to you!

Last gift shop featuring local crafters’ and artisans’ treasures before Nova Scotia.  Proudly family friendly. In 2020, the Lighthouse and Museum will be closed on September 25th and all buttoned up for the winter.
