This little house is where the author was born and lived with her parents as a toddler. The wedding dress on display is a replica, but the black shoes were hers. I liked all the photos, and the letters and journals displayed in the glass cases in the second room. But, unless you are really into L.M. Montgomery's life and... More

We drove past the house at first but turned around because of the sign. I could not get my family to go inside. I walked around the house and snapped a few pictures. I wish I would had gone inside.

As a big fan of Anne Shirley, it was nice seeing Lucy Maud Montgomery's birthplace. The ladies at the house were very knowledgeable and interesting. The kitchen was added on after Lucy and her family moved to Cavendish. Tiny house with no running water. But full of interesting items.

This was the first stop on my Anne of Green Gables adventure and it was a great way to start my day. It's a small house, but it's chocked full of history, letters, photos and even her wedding dress. The worker who was there that day was so helpful and eager to share the history of this house.

Visited before the larger Anne of Green Gables Museum. Worth calling in to get a good introduction to the author L.M.Montgomery. Small but very informative.

The lady at the front desk had a very interesting history to tell us, and the self-guided tour was more about her adulthood than her life as a child. Very informative and interesting- a must see for Anne fans.

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...
