The LMM Birthplace should take you no longer than 15 minutes. For a small fee, you'll get a quick overview of LMM's life (which you likely already know or would have picked up from previous stops in other LMM Cavendish sites). The main treat is seeing the room where LMM was born. If anything, it's a good excuse to stretch... More

This is a small, period home, with Lucy Maud's wedding dress and some other memorabilia. I'm glad the price was included in my Anne of Green Gables package, because I would not have wanted to pay to just see it. If you are an avid Anne fan, it might be a must see. We saw what we wanted in about... More

This place is proof that greatness is not limited to those born into wealth. While it doesn't take long to see this house, it is worth the stop. We enjoyed the glimpse into Lucy's life.

Visiting this small museum added more information to my understanding of Lucy Maud Montgomery, the writer of the "Anne of Green Gables" series of books (among many other works). On display here are some of Montgomery's scrapbooks -- it was neat to see her own hand and what she collected and saved during the course of her life. It was... More

This is one is my sister's review as the boys stayed outside and the ladies went in. Admission is very reasonable. It is $4 for adults and $0.50 per child. The house itself is quite small so you would think it would be a quick visit but the ladies found that they could spend 45 minutes there. The house contained... More

This museum was a nice little house in New London, PEI. It was full of musty books, newspaper clippings, photographs and antique furniture. The ladies at the desk were very informative and seemed very passionate about the museum. If you are a massive fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery, you may be fascinated. They've even marked the specific room she was... More

Definitely worth a stop if you are an Anne fan and in the area. Gives perspective on Lucy Maud Montgomery's family and life. Some interesting points for me.... account of Lucy's father after he moved west, postage stamps from Japan, pictures of LMM and her children, Good collection of LMM books and small souvenirs

This little musuem is the birthplace of L.M. Montgomery. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The home is located in lovely New London and is right across the street from a charming little general store. The collections include most notably a large collection of Maud's scrapbooks and letters and a replica of her wedding gown. (They had to remove... More
