Not only was it an interesting exhibit, but I found it to be very personally inspiring. Knowing that Maud was persistent in her submissions because she was able to hide her rejections, gave me a sense of hope and determination to continue with my own...More

We popped in here after touring Green Gables and the Cemetery. It is a fully functioning post office but also contains a little museum of sorts with information & memorabilia. The lady at the counter was friendly and answered our touristy questions, while we waited...More

This is a site that my daughter and I slipped in to see and were happy we did so. It didn't take long to go through but it was nice to see the exhibit

Very little publicity about this hidden gem of the recreated Mcneill home which is the local post office. Wonderful displays of how L.M.'s manuscripts would have traveled and equipment the family used in running the local post office from their home. Mail a postcard with...More

This is a nice little museum inside the post office. Kids enjoyed it as well. We bought postcards in the post office and sat on the bench in the garden to write them and mail them at the post office/museum.

Beautiful museum honouring the life and times of Lucy Maude Montgomery and also offering the chance to buy postcards which you can address and then pay postage to watch the post mistress cancel the stamp with a commemorative seal depicting Anne of Green Gables.

We visited this attraction by chance as we had a letter to mail. Who knew that this operating post office was a national historic site. This is the very place where the family of LM Montgomery served as postmaster and where she herself worked part...More

You can have your letters and postcards stamp with an Anne Of Green Gables postmark. Lots of history.

Don't pass this by! A wonderful exhibit about Lucy Montgomery and her family, who's family house was in the back of the field next door. Great insight about the times and her home life. You can't take photos within the museum. Total charm. A delightful...More
