Tour the Site
Begin in the Visitor Centre, where an audio-visual presentation introduces the site. An exhibit highlights the life and works of L.M. Montgomery, Green Gables and PEI National Park. Next, explore interpretive displays in the barn or view an award-winning biographical film in the L.M. Montgomery theatre. In Green Gables House, guides are available to answer your questions as you view the restored rooms - complete with artifacts authentic to the period.
Explore the Trails
Near the house itself are two trails: the Haunted Wood Trail and the Balsam Hollow Trail, which begins as Lover's Lane. Interpretive signage highlighting the inspirational sources for Montgomery's writing is located along the trails.
This new program features exploration activities for children 6 to 11 years old and their families. Your children will receive an Xplorers
