About this Property

The Wood Islands Lighthouse, built in 1876, has a 54-foot square tower still attached to a two-storey, six bedroom home. Touring PEI's most family friendly, interactive museum with 11 themed rooms will keep everyone entertained. The interpretive room will enlighten lighthouse lovers. Be intrigued by the tales of the double lives of rum-runners in the original parlor. The array of sea glass colors in the Coastal Room is mesmerizing. Let imaginations sail while watching leaping flames in the ghost ship loft. Continue to the tower top and be amazed by the stunning 360 view of PEI's coastal scenes. Stop for your last chance to shop at a gift shop that features Island artisans before you sail to Nova Scotia.

Daily (except Sun), 9 am-4 pm. Tours available 9:15 am-3:30 pm.
