All that glitters is gold at the Anne Murray Centre. The Centre is a tribute to the legendary singer’s amazing career. Rows of gold and platinum albums, and glittering trophies of all shapes and sizes fill every inch of the room. It’s breathtaking even to those who’ve been in the room before, but for those who haven’t, it’s like walking into a fantasy – a spectacular visual you’ll remember long after you’ve left the Centre!

The tour was wonderful. When you walk into the museum you can see the whole Murray family right in front of you. What a beautiful family. My mom Noreen Kimber who owns the Old Shipyard Beach Campground in Spencer's Island, Nova Scotia, was born and raised in Amherst, Nova Scotia. I grew up listening to Anne Murray. I would sing...

I wasn't planning to see this but when passing the area....decided to pop in for a self guided tour. What an interesting place and a tribute to a fine Canadian entertainer. The museum is packed with her items as well as film and broadcast material of her life and career. The staff is friendly and the place is very nicely... More

I have loved Anne Murray's songs for a long time. But one particular song, “Could I Have This Dance”, became special to my heart when I found out it was my parents favorite song. I become quite emotional every time I hear it, as it was sung at my Mom's celebration of life when she passed away. So, of course,... More

Excellent place for a Anne Murray fan. Very well done, interesting information, and great tribute to Anne Murray and her Canadian roots. She has a positive attitude that was showcased. We learned about her as a person and a star. We are happy that we took the time to stop.

My wife wanted to see this, so hesitantly, I went along. Surprisingly it was interesting. There was info on her childhood and teen years, as wee\ll as her career. Some of her Gold and Platinum Records were displayed as well as a few of her costumes. Overall not too bad.

Stopped by on a whim expecting a gift shop but found an extraordinary museum in tribute to an extraordinary performer and living home town heroin and all around nice person. Actually spent three hours here and still did not experience all of the videos. Loved it.

Excellent museum & gift shop in a wonderful historical town. A must see for Ann Murrey fans. Her Father & Mother also have a center. There is also a very interesting mining museum, a monument to miners that died in accidents and a WW1 monument.

The Anne Murray Centre (do not call it a museum - Anne Murray is still very much with us!) is a non-profit institution, whose profits are ploughed back into the Springhill community. It covers in chronological (and sometimes unexpected) detail Anne Murray's life from the time of her birth until retirement, with a couple of exhibits showing her post-retirement activities....

The centre was the Best showing Anne Murray's life from a baby right through her whole life. All of her awards were on display excellent job done. The little store was nicely displayed and prices were very reasonable. I even recorded a song with her singing with me. What a great stop.
