The Museum is filled with so much history of Anne of Green Gables and of course Lucy Maud Montgomery. A definite must if you grew up with the Canadian classic.

If you're into Anne of Green Gables this spot is definitely for you and if you're not it's still an interesting place to visit. Lots of love and care has gone into every detail. Highly recommend it.
