Centre Expo-Festival/ Village Musical Acadien

The Centre Expo Festival was founded in 1998 but became the Village Musical Acadien in 2014. It was already a facility that hosted many activities for the community, but the reconstruction made several additions that greatly enhanced the visitors’ experience. There is a performance hall, outdoor stage, restaurant, bakery, art gallery, hall of fame, gift shop, and interactive learning area!

Operated by the Association Touristique Évangéline, the Village Musical Acadien is available all year for special bookings, but the tourist season runs only from June to September.

Acadian Museum

For those interested in the rich history of PEI’s Acadian culture, you must visit this museum!

Founded in 1996, the Acadian Museum boasts carefully preserved artifacts that date as far back as the nineteenth century. A permanent display available for your viewing pleasure is “The Acadians of the Island, a community and its history,” which walks you through the history of the Acadians to the present day. There are also temporary exhibitions to watch, so keep up with their website!

St. John the Baptist Catholic Parish Church

This church is of a High Victorian Gothic style, and its well-preserved architecture and its historical significance to the Acadian people of Miscouche is why it has such great heritage value. Originally built in 1823, the building was later found too small for the parish, leading to reconstruction that was completed by the end of 1892.

You’ll want to see this community landmark—a reverent symbol of Acadian pride, culture, and heritage.

Bottle Houses – Gardens and Glass Expressions

If you’re seeking a tranquil yet whimsical experience, you’ll want to visit the Bottle Houses village, where a six-gabled house, tavern, and chapel await your awe and admiration. The six-gabled house is made of approximately 12,000 bottles, the tavern is made of about 8,000, and the chapel is made of close to 10,000 bottles. The way the natural light reflects off the glass is nothing short of magical, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself lost in a trance!

Feel free to take a leisurely stroll along the peaceful gardens, and remember to browse the gift shop to end your trip successfully!

Cape Egmont Lighthouse

This beautiful lighthouse was erected in 1884, rising just over 40 feet tall. The first keeper was Bruno Perry, who earned $200 yearly, while the last keeper, Edward J. Arsenault, served from 1950 to 1958 with an annual salary of around $2,250—until his new position as the caretaker had his salary plummet to a mere $150. Although several renovations were required throughout the years, the lighthouse maintains its tall, powerful stance today, and it was officially recognized as a heritage place in 2012.

Although Cape Egmont Lighthouse is not open to the public—as in, you can’t go inside—the surrounding view alone is worth visiting.
