This is a short visit, but made more interesting because one of Lucy Maude Montgomery's relatives gives a little talk about her life and how things used to be for her and tales about the family. Makes it seem more personal. Nice little gift shop.
A nicely done tribute to L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables. Includes the house that inspired the author and a couple of nice hiking trails that tie into the author's story. A big plus is the low admission price.
