We took a tour on a cool rainy day, and our tour guide was delightful! You'll certainly come away with a broad view of the history of the town, and it was great to hear stories from the guide on growing up in Montague! The building itself is historic, having been a post office at one point. The museum is... More

Very nice museum. Had a guided tour by a very nice young lady. Quite knowledgeable and provided a couple 'nice to know' tidbits about the area. Admission was very reasonable and you don't regret paying it. Well worth the visit.

The museum was set up nicely to display the history of the area in terms of old pioneer ways. The building itself is quite interesting, dating back to the late 1880's.

Lots of fun here taking the $5 tour with an old-timer for the first floor and a younger tour guide for the second and third floors. Both were very knowledgeable and friendly. In addition, the personal anecdotes of the older guide made the artifacts come especially alive, so I recommend taking the tour. Look for the image of a very... More

Our visit to the Museum was the highlight of our visit to P.E.I. We had set out to find our grandparents home and their gravesite. We had spent most of our childhood summers on the Island. Our father had passed away and we weren't sure of where our grandparents were buried. With the help of the Curator, Donna Collings, we... More

Cluttered, neglected, disorganized. A few interesting displays; staff friendly enough but poorly trained, don't know much at all, try to be helpful but can't. Seriously in need of updating/modernizing.
