Together, Confederation Centre of the Arts and Parks Canada are pleased to provide you with The Story of Confederation. This program offers visitors the opportunity to learn about Province House National Historic Site and the Charlottetown Conference while Province House is closed for conservation work until 2022.  

The Confederation Chamber Experience

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 20-minute film A 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. This film also showcases related themes, including the First Nations context at the time of Confederation and the role of women in Victorian society;
  • Guided interpretation of the exhibit, which includes a few original artifacts from the Confederation Chamber.
