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.

The lady at the front desk have is a lot of history about Lucy. The house has a lot of interesting items about Lucy. Great stop to learn about her!

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.

Lovely and quaint. Bits and pieces to learn about LM Montgomery that were not shared in other spots.

This is a tiny home that the author was born in and lived in as a baby, for about 2 years. It's only $4 entry and the ladies at the cashier gave us a little run down before we started that was very interesting and put a few details into the authors life. There is a lot of other reading... More

Her birthplace is a simple and small house that feels cramped by modern standard. It was interesting to see how homes looked like over a century ago. Of course, there are also books by L.M. Montgomery and Anne souvenirs for sale here. This is a must visit place for Anne buffs who are heading to the Anne of Green Gables... More
