New London was , at Lucy's birth in 1874, Clifton. A revealing look at a period home. Numerous items relating to the family on view; including a reproduction wedding dress that Lucy wore. The kind and knowledgeable woman at entry is worth talking with as she can answer questions related to the family. Extremely reasonable $4 admission into a long... More

Lovely little museum, enterpretor was wonderful. Gave us a wonderful talk on Montgomerys life, works and the history of the home she was born in. Didn't read her books just watched the Canadian TV series as a child interesting to see her birthplace. They have a replica of her wedding dress there. I enjoy history of real people

It seems unfair to just give it average, but I have a hard time saying it was VERY GOOD...I would like to have said Good. Unlike Anne of Green Gables Museum (which really should be entitled Lucy Maud Montgomery (LMM) Museum) and Green Gables (which should be referred to as a Look at Like and inspiration during the times of...

It was as expected. An old small family home with more about Lucy Maud Montgomerys' life as an adult rather than her childhood.

They have a great selection of her books, give a detailed tour, and allow you to look around. Keep in mind, it is small, and there is a small entry fee. This is a good place to learn about her early life and her parents. However, she did not live in this house long.

I read Anne of Green Gables many times over as a girl, so it was a treat to visit the author's birthplace. Amazing how entire families lived in such small spaces! I would very much like to live in it myself! They have done an excellent job of preserving its charm.

If you're a fan as my wife and daughter are you need to check out Montgomery's birth place. There is a small admission fee but the visit is worth it.
