Cost: free of charge. The Chamber visitor experience includes the following:

A stunning replica of the historical Confederation Chamber where the Fathers of Confederation met during the Charlottetown Conference; Parks Canada’s new 20-minute film ‘Building of Destiny’ which transports viewers back in time to the first eight days in September 1864 when history was made at Province House that would change the face of North America.
