  • First time in PEI. We stayed at Stanley Bridge Resort, only ten minutes from Anne of Green Gables Museum & other places. We walked the trail from Lucy Maud Montgomery to the end of the road & turned b...  more »

  • It's very 'authentic" and true to the fictional world of Anne. We were with a true "Anne Fan" and she loved it. All was well kept and neat and tidy--the house, the 'haunted woods', the gardens. Kind o...  more »

  • I had such a good time at the Anne of Green Gables Museum. It was a real treat to see the place that inspired Lucy Maud Montgomery to write the beautiful story of Anne Shirley. I could almost feel Anne's presence as I walked around the quaint old place. I would love to go back some day.
  • Lovely quaint piece of history in beautiful part of the world. Worth staying in area and exploring. Very enjoyable with buggy rides available.
  • Go here if you have read the book and are a total fan. It'll be boring and meaningless otherwise. Not worth the detour even when it's free and you have nothing to do. You can't even see the author's actual house in this park. The trails had some charm but I'm sure you can find better on the island (e.g. Bubbling Springs trail, Winter River).
  • The museum covered lots of biographical details about LM Montgomery, but not much on the books. The house tour was interesting but also lacking in specific details to make it more engaging and meaningful. There are several walking trails which are quite lovely, and of course the costumed actors were a nice addition. That said, I probably wouldn't go back.
  • Nice place for tourist. It's a "MUST GO" place for the fans that can track what's in the book.
