Monday to Saturday, June 28 to August 31. 10 am to 5 pm. Off-season by appointment.

The Bishop Machine Shop Museum was once part of a foundry complex located in the then industrial heart of Summerside. Now the turn of the 20th century belt driven machine shop stands alone as the teller of the stories of the Bishop family, long time blacksmiths and machinists. The small shop is filled with the tools of the trade, and the stories to go with them. Outdoor interpretative signage and a guided tour bring this museum to life. Admission is free.
