LECTURE SERIES: 'WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON WITH L.M. MONTGOMERY'
Wednesdays at 2:00 pm during July & August
At Bideford Parsonage Museum, we believe that a museum is a place not just for storing unique objects, but rather, it’s a place for people to engage, interact and ponder. This is because education involves active participation which is why we offer a wide array of events and exhibitions that range from celebrational to educational, targeting both adult audiences and the entire family. We invite you to peruse our upcoming schedule and plan a special day with us.

A GLIMPSE INTO OUR HISTORY
From the very beginning, our aim has always been to explore the enchanting world of L. M. Montgomery. The West Country Historical Society opened the doors of Bideford Parsonage Museum in order to educate and inspire visitors and our Curator, Shelly Campbell, has been along for the ride right from the beginning. Over the years, our reputation has grown and we are now considered a must-see History Museum for all residents and visitors to Prince Edward Island.
