PEI Joins Confederation

This year the Tryon Museum is celebrating the 150th Anniversary of PEI joining Confederation using the theme, “The Island Joins Confederation – The Tryon Connection.” Twenty displays related to the theme will be featured exhibits at the museum until the end of 2023.


Other Displays

Displays for this summer feature an eclectic mix of artefacts which have found their way into our collection. Every item has a story to tell.

The radio collection has been enhanced to include a 20 inch turntable which was used at the CJRW AM radio station in Summerside before the station converted to FM in 1999. The turntable was restored to working condition and connected to a small AM transmitter for demonstration purposes.


Also new to the collection is a working model of a telegraph system with the unique addition of a telephone connection.
