The City of Charlottetown Planning and Heritage Department’s latest exhibit entitled Queen Charlotte’s Curiosities, is on display in the storefront windows of the City’s Planning and Heritage Department at 233 Queen Street.

City staff searched their Collection and the PEI Museum and Heritage Foundation has scoured the Provincial Artifactory to locate artifacts including a cannonball found during a Charlottetown waterfront development, an old coal scuttle used in a City home before oil furnaces replaced coal, and a toy magic lantern.
